Right, then the installer knows what to do. I think this should go into
the Debian installation docs, there are a lot of boxes with graphic cards
out which are not supported by Linux.
But the low level SCSI-driver is missing in this image, or any low level
SCSI drivers for that matter. There are only the high level modules there,
like sd_mod.ko and sr_mod.ko:

So, either this is the wrong image (I've taken the same as Daniel mentioned
in one of his mails: http://debian.yorku.ca/debian/dists/testing/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc/netboot/vmlinuz-prep.initrd),
or it's missing some vital modules.
