Bug#77425: boot-floppies: tulip driver in 2.2r0 boot floppies not working

I'll try them out later this afternoon when I get back from classes.

I've finished installing all my systems, but I'll use the disks on the box
with Netgear, open up a shell and manually configure. It's just the module,
so me doing it outside the installation system shouldn't be a problem...

BTW, there were a few installation "issues" (if a long delay where you don't
really know what's going on is an issue) I had. Should I post those up as
wishlist bugs?
