(1) Installation not completed due to hardware freeze/failure
unrelated to installer (prior occurences of freezing).

Proper detection and h/w configuration of network card (ne2k pci).

Workstation is within a LAN with a DHCP server and a NAT box.

Config network error : 
Properly obtained IPv4 address from DHCP server, 
but installer's dhclient doesn't use a dhclient.conf file => does not
set default route and name resolution => after selection of mirror,
fails to contact it.

Configured route and /etc/resolv.conf manually from tty2 to proceed.

Installation diskettes should have a dhclient.conf file with
"routers", "domain-name-servers" options activated.
