right now there is no iscsi support in Debian.
The open-iscsi package are being maintained at
http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-iscsi and

I don't know the latest status of the package. CC: Maintainer.

Maybe this is the first step you need to get a working open-iscsi and
Debian. The needed drivers are in the vanilla kernel since 2.6.14 so you
would need a backported/self-built kernel.
