Severity: important

My department acquired about 50 Pentium 4s with Intel motherboards
this year with integrated ethernet connectors. Some of these need to
have Debian installed or reinstalled. The eepro100 module of kernel
version 2.4.19+ works very well as a driver but is apparently not
included in Official Debian installation media. The
sarge-i386-netinst.iso image of the 20th August 2003 tells you to go
and get the module elsewhere. This is very inconvenient and no
instructions are given about which package or disk the eepro100.o file
must be taken from.

My request is that any CD designed for Internet installation of Debian
include all kernel network modules for the computer architecture.

The workarounds I have used or could use are all very inconvenient and

The eepro100 driver is the old version, the new driver is called e100.
The installer is now set up to use the e100 driver, and it is present on
the cdrom.
