I'm trying to install Debian on a TitaniumIV, 32 bit,
(PowerBook3,5) - older than 15 years, IINM, this machine ...

with the latest image from
That is, 
is copied to a USB thumb drive. The installer booted fine, but now I'm
getting a message that modules are missing:

"No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch
between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the kernel
version available in the archive.

If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem by
choosing to install a different version of Debian. The install will
probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules.

Continue the install without loading kernel modules?

Oh: what X environment for this very old, but still working machine, is
recommendable: I thought about some minimal X, extremely lightweight.
Just xorg? How do I do this?
Point is: I currently have Debian 8 installed on this machine, and X
isn't working well. Just had it booted: crashed, and I had to use the
off-switch to reboot ...

No wayland, under no circumstances. Please! .. :)
