So, it works with this solution. Thank you for your explanation!

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

Initial boot:           [O]
Detect network card:    [O] (Manual configuration => b44: Broadcom
4400 10/100 PCI Ethernet)
Configure network:      [O]
Detect CD:             [O]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [O]
Partition hard drives:  [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Clock/timezone setup:   [O]
User/password setup:    [O]
Install tasks:          [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Overall install:        [O]

The installation took place perfectly, with the exception of the
network connection. After googled and read some reports, I just tried
to "reload" my network card by running modprobe b44. It works well
now. Thank you again :-)
