  Currently boot-floppies doesn't support DHCP.  It will be included in
  boot-floppies 2.2.5 (we're about to release 2.2.4) most probably, we're
  working on it.

  Installation over HTTP has been added to boot-floppies this weekend, and
  will be included in 2.2.4.  It hasn't been tested properly, so it might
  not work 100% till boot-floppies 2.2.5.

  You should be able to configure your network settings via DHCP and to
  install Debian over HTTP mid january.
