Bug#241467: d-i: too many things happen when wrong network driver is selected

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20040331 i386

Context: installing in qemu, and using a trail-and-error approach to
configure the network card (emulated non-pci ne2000).

Whenever I select a wrong driver (or wrong io/irq parameters), the driver
can't init as shown in the logs.  But then the installer goes on
autodetecting hardware, including attempts to load vesafb and friends.
Whenever I try another _network_ driver I have to wait for the installer to
redo the same unrelated probing again.
