Try re-running that step: reboot into the ramdisk, mount the root filesystem
and select the network configuration step. Or edit /etc/init.d/network
(and a few other config files I can't remember right now). 

It's a very bad idea to leave out this step, and the installation guide
says so. For obvious reasons.
