Exact it was 3.0.18 tested on an Amiga A2000 with Blizzard 060/50.

I was choosing the modules to include in the kernel, I get the message for
each module after the install. I look in the "offensive" directory (Sorry, I didn't
write the complete file name and message), the file was there and seems to be "good" looking.

Always exact, I look today the debian ftp site and the file is now "basedebs.tar".
I can't easily install from the network without playing with many cables as
I have 2 Lan cards and the second card is never recognised at boot time, it is the
card connected to my ADSL modem, the A2000 acts as a router for my small home LAN.
The problem is always present with "standard" kernels where the "ariadne2"
driver used to be a module.
When I compile a new kernel with "ariadne2" compiled in (not as a module) the
card is recognised at boot time. The 2.2.20 kernel I use now works very nice,
but X seems to be broken (was working 2 weeks ago with a 2.4.17 kernel !).
I hope this will help.
When I have finished the ongoing install, I will retry the boot floppies on another
disk partition where there is some space left.
