Bug#241491: d-i: cannot install without a network card
If there is no network card in the machine, using the netinst image (which
should be able to install the base system without a network access, as I
could check), refuses to get past the network driver selection dialog, at
least in qemu. I had to start qemu in such a way that it has a network
interface, even if it's not connected to a usable network, to go further.
This will be annoying to install on some embedded systems such as PDAs.
