Apologies for not getting back earlier.   I've downloaded the Oct 3
Debian testing PPC, and I'm still having the same problem.  lsmod does
not show the amd74xx driver loaded.  modprobe doesn't work either; the
driver is not in /lib/modules.

I appreciate the help you guys are offering.  We've been stuck using
SuSE on these blades for two years.  I'm *greatly* looking forward to
the day I can use a good OS on them. :-)
