I think I could install off of a CD image installer using all-generic-ide

It could indeed that IDE modules are not loaded for your hardware.
When switching to VT2 is possible for you in d-i,
then I suggest that you manual `modprobe IDE-modules`.
(And please provide feedback.)
Trying modprobe IDE-modules from VT2 before the hardware detection scan:
FATAL: Module IDE_modules not found.
lsmod shows that ide_core is the only ide_* module loaded at this point.
Then I let hardware detection run. This loaded up ide_generic, ide_disk
and ide_cd. IDE_modules is still not found, but I'm guessing you meant
ide_* to get generic, disk and cd to load. I tried manually modprobing
those modules, with little effect as they were already automatically
loaded. If there is some module named IDE_modules, it does not exist on
that installer in a location that `modprobe IDE-modules` would work.
This is the same installation CD I used in October. The help text before
booting the installer (F1) says 20061019.
I apologize for the large delay but the system I was testing on before
was put into production and has not been able to be taken offline since.
I have since purchased identical hardware for a backup of the system and
am testing again. I am still of the opinion that all-generic-ide must be
compiled in for this to work. I have not seen a post on the web to the
contrary, instead I see more about work-arounds like sata cd-rom drives
and USB installs.
