Bug#248075: ethernet module install

Under 2.4.26, I had to switch terminals and insert sata_via manually. 
Then, it recognized my SATA drives (as /dev/sd[01], IIRC).  I didn't do
a full install with 2.4.  I could if it would be interesting.

With the 2.6.5 kernel, it automatically recognized the drives as
/dev/hd[eg].  Installation went as expected after that.

With the 2.6.5 install, the Ethernet came up just fine and I was able to
connect to a Debian mirror.

Thanks for the work.  The new installer is quite nice.
