This is a known problem with the full CDs, depsite numerous requests to
the debian-cd guys to fix this, they do not include the netcfg udeb
necessary to get the network configured. They also don't include a
usable set of packages to get X working, or some hardware working
post-install, so I cannot recommend you use them if you want a working
system -- use the netinst CDs.

Please don't paraphrase error messages. What exactly did you select from
the menu, and what was the exact error message you received?
