The installation will install your rescue.bin in the Install Kernel
and Modules step. rescue.bin is identical to linux.bin, so I would say
yes. Your drivers.tgz in the new-powermac folder, is where the modules are
found. As you will see if you look at the contents, it contains modules,
modconf, and an install.sh script to install them.

The modules have to end up in a directory whose name matches the
version of your kernel. If you really have no modules, maybe just
making a directory with the right name in /target/lib/modules would
make it happy. If you need some modules, a quick fix is just to copy
in the ones from the b-f set. Not sure what issues might arise from
that later, though.
