Comments/Problems: My motherboard has an nForce chipset which I rely on for network functionality. The installer reported being unable to detect a network card, and gave a list of possible network cards. NForce did appear on there, but though I selected this, it still would not work - it said something along the lines of "the forcedeth module did not work. Please supply extra parameters to make it work".
