install sarge on dual G5 -> hang

Hi - using:


to install sarge on a dual G5 with 'install-(safe-)power4' initially
works fine, but then hangs during the stage entitled 'Detecting
network hardware' at the step of: 

   "Loading module 'floppy' for 'Linux Floppy'..."

After that, the machine seems to be locked solid. This sounds like it
is trying to install modules which are inappropriate for G5s but
appropriate for other power4 machines - a problem which I thought had
been recently sorted out.

Any advice on how to install Debian on such a machine?

thanks, Michal
