Is this is a new error or have you experienced it for some time now and
just could not spatre the time to report the bug until now? I am asking
because this sounds like another instance of
http://bugs.debian.org/254950 "module-init-tools complains about read
only filesystem at boot time".
The version of module-init-tools you are running currently has this bug
fixed, but you might still have the old broken version on the initrd
which is generated at installation of the kernel-image package.
Could you try to regenerate initrd either by running
mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.6-2-686 /lib/modules/2.6.6-2-686
or by uninstaling and re-installing kernel-image-2.6.6-2-686 and check
whether the error is fixed? (I am not completely sure about the
initrd-commandline, so if it does not work please try the purge+install
