patch to correct order of network setup items

Attached are patches to ddetect and netcfg so that "configure network
hardware" will appear in the menu before "setup dhcp networking" or
"setup static networking", since the latter 2 can't be done until the
former is complete. 

Also, is the "retriever controller" which will let you select your
retreiver, as discussed in retriever.txt, started yet? I don't see
anything obvious in the source. Also, do we have a cd retriever yet?
If not, I plan to work on these two things. 

Also, the error I got before about "can't locate module net-pf-1" is
still occuring, so the network can't be set up. Is this just a module
missing from the initrd?
