Bug#273935: debian-installer installs kernel 2.6 without modules

That's right. I have /boot, /, /home and others. For
the re-installation, I re-formatted just /.

A possible complain is that the installer did not
select the new 2.4.27 kernel as default, rather left
the old 2.6.7. No modules were loaded for that kernel,
leaving me without an ethernet connection. Rebooting
with 2.4.27 did of course solve the problem.
