I don't have exactly the same machine as yours, but here is what I
have when booting from the Debian 2.6.8 kernel (*not* the d-i kernel)
on a dual G5 (PowerMac7,3)
~$ dmesg | grep eth0
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
eth0: Sun GEM (PCI) 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet 00:0d:93:6d:26:f8
eth0: Found BCM5421-K2 PHY
eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full-duplex.
eth0: Pause is enabled (rxfifo: 10240 off: 7168 on: 5632)
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
:~$ lsmod | grep gem
sungem 43140 0
crc32 9216 1 sungem
sungem_phy 14592 1 sungem
~$ lspci | grep -i ether
0001:04:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Apple Computer Inc. K2 GMAC (Sun GEM)
You might want to go to the virtual terminal (Ctrl+Option+F2) and try
these commands to see what your kernel reports before and after you try
inserting the sungem driver (I don't recall if lspci is on the installer
