I forwarded your post to debian-powerpc also, hoping someone with MVME experience
might help.

It sounds a lot like the cases in i386 where a given hardware module isn't 
compiled into the kernel. 

Since you're network-connected, assuming you get the installer
booting, you could try going right to Configure the Network, and then
installing the kernel and modules via the network, then see if the
module you need is in the list when you Configure the modules.
