Bug#413788: Daily Etch build fails to install on iMac G5 - Ethernet not detected

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: Downloaded netinstall CD image, burnt CD.
Image version: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/daily-builds/daily/arch-latest/powerpc/iso-cd/debian-testing-powerpc-netinst.iso
Date: Wed Mar 7, 9am Australian Central Standard Time.

Machine: Apple G5 iMac, revision A.
Processor: PowerPC G5.
Memory: 250M
Partitions: (not relevant)

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot:           [O]
Detect network card:    [E]

Can't proceed any further.

Comments/Problems: The Ethernet connection is not detected. This machine has an 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port. I suspect the correct driver hasn't been included in the netinstall image.

Since this is a netinstall and the network can't be initialized, I couldn't proceed beyond this point.

Cheers,  Mike.
