"We recommend that you only configure devices which are required for the installation process and not already detected by the kernel. Many people do not need to configure any kernel modules at all."

How do we know which devices have been "already detected by the kernel" at this point?

Is there a 'second console'? If so, i'm wondering what kind of output i'd expect from lsmod at that point?

there is a third console as well alt+f3 and ther is displayed everything what is happening.
You should not be so worrie about that so much if lsmod don't give some output you can have a look alt+f1 where is optind instalation drivers and there you can modules with + symbol that indicates that this modl is installed. bes choise is choose appropriate linux installation. We are talking about woody or sarge test?

Are you saying that these modules, with a plus symbol, appear before the user 'does anything' as a result of the install?

>>We are talking about woody or sarge test?

woody at the moment. It's a pity as surely sarge can only be days away?

no this modules with + are modules instaled by you summarize modules detected by kernel you need to have a look to files like:

/var/log/dmesg
/proc/devices
/proc/interrupts
/proc/ioports

for workstation sarge test can by used, what is your main point to install debian?
