I think you installed from a full CD images, using only the CD?
In that case this issue should be fixed with later versions of the

You can solve this by adding the module in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules 
and regenerating the initrd (using 'update-initramfs'). I'm making a 
change in the installer that will make the installer take care of this 
for future installs.

Currently the scsi modules for hp-bus devices are added in /etc/modules, 
but that is too late for booting if an initrd is being used.

They are filtered out and never reach the mailing lists. I only saw your 
report by accident.
