The overall install went ok, new installer rocks !

The error (loading modules) does not really concerns only this machine, but is a
more general thought for problems I had on several sarge installations.

When trying to add custom modules for specific hardware (some broadcom ethernet
cards, for ex) we can preload modules from floppy. Great. Now the problem is:
what if there is NO floppy !

It would be great if installer allowed to preload modules not only from floppy,
but also on usb key (using mass storage) because it is becoming the de-facto
standard on many laptop and even workstations.

Thanks for your work, and keep doing this.
