Re: Bug#83608: [PATCH]: modutils-udeb for debian-installer

We're really strapped for space trying to fit all on a single floppy.  We have
to carefully consider the 10k that using modprobe will cost us.  Is it possible
for you to elaborate on why you don't want us to use insmod.  We really only
need it to insmod a nic module, and after that we can grab anything else that we
want off the net (modprobei. for example).
