Have you tried looking if the module you need is available (switch to VT2 
and look under /lib/modules/<kernel version/... If so, have you tried to 
modprobe it manually?

The kernel configuration is exactly the same as the default kernel 
configuration in the 2.6.8 kernel-image packages.
Note however that not all modules may be included in packages used by the 
installer, although I very much doubt that is the problem in your case.

On possibility is that your system just needs a newer version of the 
driver than was available in 2.6.8.

We hope to be able to present installation images using 2.6.11 kernels 
fairly soon after Sarge is released.
