You were not trying to install using a *scsi* cdrom were you? Those are
not supported without an extra drivers floppy; you have to boot the
cdrom and then load the scsi_drivers disk.

If it's a normal IDE cdrom, you should have gotten all the scsi modules,
including sym53c8xx, after d-i loaded the rest of itself from cdrom.
