Bug#241637: debian-installer: Floppy images from yesterday didn't detect my IDE drive

Package: debian-installer
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I'm using the floppy images from [1], downloaded ~ 15 hrs earlier.

"cat /proc/pci | grep -i ide" reports:
IDE interface: intel corp. 82801DB ultra ata storage controller (rev. 1)

I used the 'expert' mode to start the installation, as I wanted to
install Sid. Even booting in standard mode doesn't help.

"Detect hardware" says it will install the ide-disk, etc., modules,
though lsmod just shows ide-core installed.

/proc/devices too doesn't show ide in the "block devices" section.

This could be a dup of #231432, but it's filed against
debian-installer-demo. Don't know if they're related.
