This machine has the Intel 82566DM-2 NIC, which IIUC requires the
"e1000e" driver. This driver is not present in either the hd-media
install (using the businesscard ISO) or the netboot install. I could
have completed the install using the businesscard ISO, but did not wish
to end up with a kernel without the right NIC driver, so I left it.
Grateful for any ETA on this driver being included in daily builds.
