This is the old legacy no-good (well, for 2.6) one.  You need
module-init-tools, I'm fairly certain the debian package is named that
too, but maybe its only available in unstable and perhaps testing.  I'm
nowhere near a Linux box to check for you :~(If you're running stable, you can either add the sources for
unstable/testing and rebuild or you can add the binaries, set stable as
your default in apt.preferences and upgrade just module-init-tools and its
requirements (and not the whole system).
