The kernel used for the debian installer does not have the sbp2 module built correctly.
>From a shell attempting to load the sbp2 module generates the following error:

  ~ # modprobe sbp2
  FATAL: Error inserting sbp2 (/lib/modules/2.6.15-1-powerpc64/kernel/drivers/ieee1394/sbp2.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
  ~ # dmesg | tail

Is there a newer debian-installer kernel available which has this bug fixed?
(I think it is fixed in 2.6.15-8).

Also, why is the date of the daily image old?
