The businesscard contains all code needed for the installer itself on CD 
and downloads the debs needed for the base system from the network, so it 
has the full range of kernels available.

The netinst also contains all the debs needed to setup the base system, 
but with a very limited kernel selection (i.e. only the i386 variant).
The netinst does not use the network connection until _after_ the reboot 
(as I have already explained to you in an earlier reply).
