it'd be better to have overly technical questions in the general list
than overly basic/dumb questions in the guru linux list. I overlooked
that the DebianSlug distribution is considered "custom firmware".
Since I didn't custom compile/build it, I figured it didn't belong in
the nslu2-linux group, and especially since it wasn't a question like,
"I get this bizarre kernel error message 0xdeadface when I compile
module 'dummy.o' and do 'depmod dummy' command".

then ipkg install the modules, and then modprobe them. It has worked
so far, but probably isn't the cleanest method. I don't expect it to
work w/o a hard drive attached. Indeed, your method would be the most
probable to succeed with or without disk attached.

Until it's officially supported via Debian, it's probably better to
manually do this for now.
