The network card in this notebook is a Xircom RBEM56G-100 (PCMCIA),
requiring the xircom_cb module.  Selecting this from the list failed
with a "cannot detect your ethernet card" error.  'lsmod' on vt2 showed
the module loaded, but not any of the other PCMCIA modules.  (A brief
diversion was taken here to reset the keyboard map to American English,
due to #221932.)  modprobe'ing yenta_socket and ds manually (which also
pulled in pcmcia_core) was necessary for the Ethernet interface to be

Selecting 'none of the above' initially, loading yenta_socket and ds,
and then attempting network hardware detection also failed - the
installer mistakenly requested the tulip_cb module instead of xircom_cb.

All steps up to and including the reboot went flawlessly.  However,
after reboot, the system was unable to continue installation, as none of
the PCMCIA modules had been installed.
