<Booting from CD. Main goal was to test the wireless network setup in 
installation. I have a Linksys WPC11V3 card which should talk to a Linksys 
BEFW11S4. It was not able to pull an IP address from the router, but I've 
seen this happen before. I gave it a static IP address - which I actually 
prefer. It would be nice if this were an opton in the installer.

After the reboot, I was informed that I did not have an internet connection, 
so the wireless setup did not work. It would have been nice if I had been 
informed of this much earlier in the installation - possibly at the point 
that it was configuring the network. For all intents and purposes, everything 
I did after that point - most of what was done - was wasted time.
