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.

   * Joshua Kwan
     - Holy batman, Discover groks SBUS now! Disable the sunhme registration
       hack in hw-detect.sh.
     - And with that, add sbus to the list of busses probed by discover's
     - Fix Joey's template typo that caused modules to stop loading.
     - Correct some trivial Makefile style things.
   * Joey Hess
     - Add a "no ethernet card" option in ethdetect if autodetection finds
       nothing, to break out of the loop. Closes: #255247
     - If a module fails to load and there were no parameters, prompt for
       parameters at critical priority using a special template, and try the
       load again. Closes: #242827
     - Remove special case for ne, it should be handled by the above.
     - Prompt about whether to prompt for module parameters, to avoid 20
       useless questions on low priority installs (any better ideas?)
       Closes: #239890
   * Thiemo Seufer
     - Expand list of SGI ip32 CPUs.
