I'm sorry I forgot to report to debian-boot (why am I so busy...?).
But I reproduced this problem on my environment, i386 VMware 4+yesterday
sid snapshot CD image.
I saw 'DHCP fail' message at install stage, and tried to find what's

I tried to run '/sbin/modprobe af_packet' and got 'Error inserting
af_packet (/lib/modules/2.4.25-1-386/kernel/net/packet/af_packet.o):
Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)'.
I was very wondering what was this, but when I tried to run 'modprobe
af_packet', problem was gone.

I don't know why this problem is happen (in busybox?), but at least
removing '/sbin/' solves this. I've already checked fixed netcfg
