Could be, I did not check that.
Earlier today I tried the netinst daily build.
It too detected the network, but failed at disk detection. Actually I
think I saw the drive model flash by in dmesg, indicating that it was
detected, but failed at some other point. I will have a closer look next
time I try to install.
