The amd74xx is the one in charge, can you go into a console, and then do an
lsmod to see if it is loaded ?

can you try modprobing it ? I can't really check it out myself, since my devel
box is currently down right now, and i have no checked out tree.

Mayube someone else within the d-i team can look at the powerpc kernel .udebs
to see where the amd74xx module is included and further help MAthew ?

(i will also mostly be offline until friday).
