Bug#264492: NewWorld (G4) PowerPC d-i hardware detect does not see firewire disk

Package: installation-reports

	 powerpc businesscard "RC1" NewWorld PowerMac



"Partition hard drives" fails to see FireWire disk on powerpc NewWorld (G4) PowerMac on RC1 businesscard install.

You folks are probably tired of seeing OldWorld PowerPC bug reports from me, so I thought I'd shake things up a bit with a NewWorld bug report.

    How did you install?
	booted businesscard CD in "expert" mode

    If network install, from where? </etc/apt/sources.list>
		#deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sarge main

		deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main
		deb-src ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main

Didn't get that far because it didn't see my FireWire drive, which I intended to use for installation testing.

The "detect disks" phase failed to detect my firewire disk, which I was intending to use for installation test.

I started over and, just before "detect disks" phase, I switched to the F2 console and typed
	modprobe ohci1394
	modprobe sbp2
Then switched back to the F1 console and proceeded. This time it saw the firewire disk.
