Well, first let me try to figure out what are you really doing:

 - Are you using Debian Installer or sarge installed system?
 - Could you please provide the output of "(lspci ; lspci -n) | sort"?
 - Could you please provide the output of "lsmod"?

Looks like a kernel related issue and might be good if you could try
to use a new snapshot of Debian Installer (in case you're using it)
and check if it works. Otherwise, if you're using a installed system,
might be good to try to update your kernel version and check if it
solves your problem.

See ya!
