I finally figured some of this out on my own.  There were several
other modules that I needed (isofs, nfs, lp, etc.. as in 0.93R6).

In general, I think the beta 1.1 installation lacks severely in this

does not run correctly and gives a ton of error messages saying it
cannot find the /etc/modules file (when it is there!), and will not
allow the installation to continue.  This is why I never had the
opportunity to tell the installation procedure what modules to load (I
discovered this after I fixed the problem and was wondering if I
missed something along the way.  It seems the 'recommended' next step
at the top of the 1.1 installation never recommends to add the
