Bug#255211: netcfg: loops when no network hardware is present

Package: netcfg
Version: 20040618
Severity: normal

If I install on a system without a network card, it obviously fails
to detect one, then prompts me to insert drivers manually. If
I select 'none of the above' then I am told I can load from floppy.
If I say no, then I am back to the manual selection.

Only <escape> will get me to the menu.

I think netcfg should do one of the following, or even both:

1. In expert mode, ask the user whether there is a network card, and
only if yes, then try to detect and configure it.

2. Display 'no network card present' as one (the first?) of the
choices in the manual selection box.
