This machine has a isa ne2000-compatible network card, which works with
the ne module provided by the net driver floppy. However, the installer
doesn't ask for module parameters when run with normal priority, and
there is no way to use the ne module without giving at least an io
parameter. I solved this by dropping to the command line, modprobing it
in, and then running the Detect Network Hardware step again to tell d-i
i had network, but then d-i knows nothing about how to load the module
at the next system startup.

Related: When network card detection fails, the user is presented with a
list of linux network card kernel modules. However, for a person who
isn't already using linux, these names have no meaning. It would be
better if the installer listed common network cards each module
supports in addition to the module name.

     - Use devnames descriptions for ethdetect.sh where possible.
       Closes: #225166
     - Create 'BLACKLIST' entries for stuff that shouldn't be seen in

     - Update a whole ton of descriptions.

     - Don't mess with the seen flag of a question that has not yet been
