Bug#360815: netinst: S/390 with virtual QDIO device fails to start network device on boot

Package: netinst
Version: base-network
Severity: important

Using etch Beta 2: installation goes OK, but network device is not picked
up on reboot.  This seems to be because "alias eth0 qeth" is commented out 
in /etc/modules.conf, and although "qeth" is present in /etc/modules, it is 
not loaded at boot.

Uncommenting "alias eth0 qeth" in /etc/modules.conf fixes the problem; a
manual workaround is:

modprobe qeth
ifconfig eth0 <whatever>
route add default gw <whatever>
