The install would not recognize my Linksys WUSB11 v2.8 USB network
adapter and did not include any Atmel AT76C503A driver.

In addition, I have some suggestions for the usability of the installer's
menu system.  Here were my experiences.

At the top of the "Detect network hardware" screen, it says, "If the 
correct module is not listed, you may need to load additional modules
from a driver floppy.  In that case, choose the option which indicates 
that your module is not listed."

I chose "none of the above", at which point I get a warning dialog 
that precipitates me to the "Debian installer main menu", which says 
nothing about loading additional modules from a driver floppy.   
*** This warning dialog should give pretty specific instructions about how to
load drivers from floppy (including kernel version?), but it doesn't. ***

The closest option is "Load installer components from CD".  
(*** Note: this should probably say "... from CD or floppy. ***)  
This produces a menu of interesting but (to me) irrelevant components.  
I choose "Go back", and to my surprise, instead of going back to the 
main menu, it goes to the "Load installer components from CD" menu 
(which has not appeared before), which gives me the choice of cdrom- 
or floppy-retriever.  *** Maybe there should be two buttons, one saying 
"Go back", and one saying, "Load from floppy instead" ***

I don't really know how to proceed with the install, but here's what
I'm guessing I need to do:

Get the sources for the kernel used by the sarge installer; compile
an appropriate driver, following instructions at, e.g.
http://at76c503a.berlios.de/; copy the driver onto a floppy; navigate
to the (well-hidden) screen in the installer allowing loading of
modules from floppy; and hope the sarge installer will know what to do
with it.  Sound OK?  (Doing 'uname -a' at the shell prompt in the
installer indicates that this Sarge CD image is using 2.4.25  and 2.6.5).

 load-installer - Load installer components (udeb)
Closes: 247910
 anna (0.060) unstable; urgency=low
   * Bastian Blank
     - Use dependency resolver with Kernel-Version and Subarchitecture
     - Build-Depend against libdebian-installer4 (>= 0.23).
   * Joey Hess
     - Stop hardcoding dependency on no longer existant libc-udeb, just
       use the libc6 dependency from substvars, and let libc6-udebs provide,
       plus libd-i's lack of version checking, do their thing.
     - If anna is run with a parameter and the user backs up from the
       screen of modules to load, they should back all the way out rather than
       getting to the retreiver selection screen. Closes: #247910
