Bug#96237: boot-floopies problem

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.23

flavor:        vanilla
architecture:  i386
model:         Toshiba Tecra 510CDT (laptop)
memory:        148 megs
scsi:          none
cd-rom:        Toshiba XM-1502B (ATAPI compatible)
network card:  3Com 3CCFE574BT (PCMCIA)
pcmcia:        The network card is the only PCMCIA device on this

Immediately before the main menu appears, I see a whole bunch of
messages that look like this:

"modprob:  modprob:  Can't open dependencies file

I'm trying to install over a network.  At the "Select Installation
Medium" screen, my network card does not appear in the list.

Recognizing that I probably need to set up PCMCIA first, I select
"Configure PCMCIA support" from the main menu.  After answering all the
questions, I receive the following error message:

"An error encountered while trying to load and configure the PCMCIA

Very informative.

At this point I am thoroughly confused.  I select "Configure Device
Driver Modules" from the main menu.  After answering "yes" to the
question, I receive the following error message:

"Problem: No modules were found in /target/lib/modules/2.2.19pre17 that
could be configured.  Please install the modules first."

I have some vague notion that the modprob errors I got at the beginning
are somehow related to the absence of device driver modules on the root
disk I downloaded.

I tried downloading the root disk again, but the same thing happened.

I have read the installation manual, but I couldn't find the answer to
my problem.
