Language : English, Country: Slovenia, Keyboard: US-English
I tried with Country: Germany, in case Slovenia is the cuase of problem,
but the same problem (reboot at "SETTING UP THE CLOCK") persists.
In defailt installer says DHCP probe succeeded.
But when I tried "expert" installation, when I come to Netwok configuration,
it says there isn't a driver for network card, and asks floppy with the driver.
The network card is "Realtek RTL8139 PCI Fast Ethernet NIC" and
Realtek's website says "Linux driver (driver has built-in the kernel)".
