The modules.conf file... see what modules are loaded -- they'll be the
same and you can configure them during the module configuration during
the installation or later using "modconf".
I use the trick you did also, I boot Knoppix, grab the XF86Config file
and put that in Debian's X configuration.
Beta 2 of the new installer was released this week or last. You may
want to try that out for your installation (maybe bugs, maybe clean
install... worth a try). Info on where to find it was up on
www.debianplanet.com in one of the recent articles.
