I'm not sure actually but back then you were definitely installing
Debian's sparc port (32-bit userland / 64-bit kernel) which is no
longer part of Debian.

We are now working on a new, full 64-bit SPARC port called "sparc64",
so many things are actually built from scratch. It's therefore not
unlikely that the old installer images contained some work-around
to address the problem, at least initramfs-tools contains one [1]
which is not used in the installer image, however, and people therefore
have to load the modules manually for the installation.

Great, thanks a lot!
