Hmmm.   Well, my kernel (the only one there) is 2.2.20-idepci   and its 
directory doesn't contain any of those modules.   So I guess maybe I'm using 
the wrong kernel.  

I've just dug up a document 'images.html' I found somewhere on the net (or 
maybe on a Woody CD-ROM) that says:

idepci image:
The idepci flavor contains a kernel with only IDE and PCI support.  It
is geared towards modern PCs without SCSI controllers.  If you have
SCSI, you should be using the 'compact' flavor rather than this one.

Obviously I chose the wrong option when I installed Debian.   So I guess I 
need to replace my kernel with the 'compact' or the 'vanilla' one.

Predictably - 
modprobe: Can't locate module ide-scsi
