I've looked at this again, and it seems that my problems are due to
debian-installer not finding the sym53c8xx module from the 2.6 kernel.
This in turn is because d-i uses discover which automatically probes
for ncr53c8xx instead and fails because that driver doesn't exist any
more. So I believe this bug is with d-i and should stay open. If you
want me to test a more recent build, please let me know.
In any case, the bug deserves a more fitting title, which I'm setting
