Squeeze installer missing cdc_ether

 I'm new to debian and trying to install squeeze onto a powerbook G4. I've tried 

official and unofficial installers and have the same problem with both. My cable 

modem uses a USB connection, and while the USB device is recognized in the dmesg 
output the 

"cdc_ether" kernel module isn't present. I see the cdc_ether module is present 
in the regular kernel, but not on the installer disk.

 How do I obtain such a module? Searching the package database I can't find 
the "nic-usb-modules" udeb for powerpc. Would it work to copy cdc_ether.ko from 
the regular kernel
image onto a USB stick and load it on the fly while the installer runs?
