Refused to see the sk98lin-driven NIC, so I downloaded the 2.6.8-2 kernel sources, patched with the Linux driver patch from Marvell, made the modules, copied the newer sk98lin.ko over to the initrd, rebooted and driver loaded without issue.

A lot of the PCI devices were 'unknown' so I copied over later *.lst ID files from the discover package on an unstable box, which then identified a lot of them. The IDE controller is an Intel 82801FBM (ICH6M) SATA controller, however d-i can't find a driver for this :-(
