I'm sorry, but I can't help you at that level of detail. Suggest you try
the debian-user mailing list for that.
One thing worth knowing is that the installer does not support the (old)
'ifconfig' command; you have to use 'ip' instead.
I've looked at your log and the basic facts are still the same: a driver
for your NIC is loaded, it is eth0 and the dhcp client tries to connect
on the correct interface and fails.
We know that dhcp works correctly in the installer in general, so it's
almost certainly a local problem, either because of your local network
setup or related to the hardware (which includes possible problems with
the kernel driver).
