It looks like the hardware-summary was made on the (already installed)
Etch system. Is that correct?
From the loaded modules in that summary, I see that you use PPPoE, but
I see no sign of PPPoE support in the installation log. If you need
PPPoE support, please try booting with the following boot parameter:
See also the appendix on PPPoE in the installation guide:
Note that the instructions there are slightly outdated. For information
how to add a boot parameter, see:

That's not it. From your syslog:

So, the forcedeth card is eth0 and the firewire one is eth1, and DHCP
is trying correctly on eth0.
