The installer currently does not have the option to do that.

However, you can probably do it manually by switching to VT2 and copy the 
module off a floppy, USB stick or, after you've configured the network, 
by using netcat's nc (or if you install the ssh-client component of d-i, 
you can use scp).

You will also have to copy the module into /target after the step where 
the kernel is installed.
