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.

All you need to do is let it fail to find the ethernet card, and then
choose "none of the above", and when you get to the main menu, select a
menu item that is further along. You'll want to bypass configuring the
network too of course, the same method will work.
