Try this:
- boot system with KNOPPIX
- set up the network in KNOPPIX (netcardconfig)
- mount the debian root partition
- mount additional partitions (/usr /var ...) IF you have them (my guess is you have Debian just on one big partition
- chroot to the Debian root
- use apt-get/aptitude to install the linux-image, but don't forget to FIRST EITHER downgrade yaird OR edit /etc/yaird/Default.cfg and add
        MODULE ide-generic
        MODULE ide-disk
right after the "MODULE evdev" line

Hope this dows the trick
