I got the same problem :
I start a floppy install, connecting to the internet (using the
net-drivers.img floppy), but it doesn'y seems to load the needed ide
drivers from the ftp.debian.org archive.
I solve it simply by loading the cd drivers from the cd-drivers.img
floppy image, and then the install process works good.
I get the floppy images today on :
My system is :
2 nics (3com isa & ne2k pci)
The installer run in low memory mode, and I run it in expert mode.
Note: I failed to load the cd-drivers after the net-drivers, but it
works in loading the cd-drivers first and then loading the net-drivers.
I'm sorry but I don't try the last floppy image from :
Hope it may help
