The PCG-F590 does not have an onboard Ethernet adapter. When I have to plug
into a wired network, I use a USB-Ethernet adapter. I have a few, the one I
used for this install was an SMC adapter, here's the lsusb output:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0707:0201 Standard Microsystems Corp. 

(lsusb -v output can be supplied if desired, but it's really verbose).

So when it came to detecting the network hardware, I was presented with a
list of adapters. I switched to the second virtual terminal and modprobed
the pegasus module, and switched back to the first virtual terminal, and
selected "none of the above", and opted not to load a module from a driver
disk. I then got a red screen saying that no network device had been

Upon acknowledging this error message, I was told that the installer was
trying to configure the network using DHCP, which was successful, and the
install continued as normal.

I've already filed a wishlist bug (#262638) against ethdetect with a
better-than-nothing way of avoiding having to manually modprobe the pegasus
driver. I think the pegasus chipset is the most common USB-Ethernet adapter
chipset, so this is going support the majority of USB-Ethernet adapters out

Oh, and I was asked about a HTTP proxy twice, once when the normal APT
source lines were updated, and once before the security APT source was
