The 8139too driver is available in the stock Debian kernel, I think
you are simply looking in the wrong place.

$ dlocate 8139
kernel-image-2.6.8-power4: /lib/modules/2.6.8-power4/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.ko
kernel-image-2.6.8-power4: /lib/modules/2.6.8-power4/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko
kernel-image-2.6.8-power4-smp: /lib/modules/2.6.8-power4-smp/kernel/drivers/net/8139cp.ko
kernel-image-2.6.8-power4-smp: /lib/modules/2.6.8-power4-smp/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.ko

I would try running 'modprobe 8139too' to load it (though I have no
idea if your card will work ;-)
