Load installer modules: [ E ] -> sbp2 ieee1394 ohci1394 raw1394 (?) missing to make external
Detect hard drives: [ E ] -> firewire drive show up. Aborted install.

I like my OS X.3 machine; I would love to run linux on the side, on a removable FW drive.
This is doable, but the installer needs to provide the firewire modules.

We are closing this installation report for one of the following
- it was reported with a pre-lenny version of Debian
- indications in the installation report give the feeling that
the reported problem waslying in another software, unrelated to
D-I, which we can't easily identify.
- indications in the installation report suggest that it may have been
fixed in a more recent version of a D-I component
- it was successful and we forgot closing it..:-)
- it has no information we consider useful
The D-I team is currently in the process of cleaning out the old spool
of installation reports that haven't bene processed yet.
In case you think that the problem you reported has chances to be
still present, please reiterate your installation test with
a more recent image of D-I, if you're in position of doing this.
You'll find daily builds at
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer. We recommend you choose
the netboot image, in the "daily builds section", then choose to
install "squeeze" when prompted.
If some problems are found, please report them with a new bug sent
Many thanks for your understanding and your help improving Debian,
past and present.
