Incidentally, I thought I had the same problem installing on my Compaq
Presario 700US laptop (it uses 8139too), since I looked for the module
but it wasn't there.  But it, too, was built into the kernel.  A bit
confusing at first, to say the least...

Some sort of report of what the installer found and what it couldn't
deal with would be nice in d-i (obviously too late for woody, though).
Once I get reportbug free of brown bag bugs I'll probably try to do
some work on d-i.
