Install run in low memory mode
Ran install several times. On each occasion the installer found the network PCMCIA card without problems (3Com Etherlink III 3C589 PCMCIA card).
System appeared to configure correctly – downloading files over FTP.
However, on re-boot the network card wasn't seen. Same problem on multiple occasions.
Card services appeared not to boot.
Cardmgr error 1775 - said there was "no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices"
Re-installed Debian version 3.0 and card worked OK again.
Multiple re-installs of version 4.0 failed as above.
