I'd prefer an hfs-modules udeb instead.

This is syslog whining because it can't find the unix socket
module.  We should add the socket-modules udeb to the cdrom
package list.  I've heard such support will soon be compiled into
the kernel, at which point we can remove it.

That's not it.  The CDROM image does not include the network
configuration udebs in the initrd, so you have to run "Load
installer modules" before they'll appear.
