The normal bf2.4 installation kernel should have support for i2o_scsi.
Did you try it?

Oh, I was not aware that additional device files are needed. I think it
should be easy to extend dbootstrap (and libfdisk) to look for these

Go to the second console, partition, then mount future root on /target/.
Return to the installer and continue with the kernel&modules
installation step.
