Bug#357293: configuring unused network card
The "gives me problems later" refers to that fact that the
installer will ask for the Debian archive mirror, but since I didn't
configure the network (and have no connection to the Internet or any
network with a Debian archive mirror on it) I get an error message and
can't properly finish the install. I think you answered my question in
your previous email where you mention that a fix has already been
implemented as of March 15th. There are jigdo files for a weekly build
dated March 20th, so I'll try them.

Please tell more about those problems that occure later.
Also check the manual if a workaround is documented.
