Bug#509937: installation-guide-i386: suggested image for memory-stick booting does not contain network drivers

Package: installation-guide-i386
Version: lenny
Followup-For: Bug #509937

Section 4.3.1 ("Copying the files -- the easy way") says:
    There is an all-in-one file hd-media/boot.img.gz which contains
    all the installer files (including the kernel) as well as syslinux
    and its configuration file.

As far as I can tell, this image does not contain any network drivers.
At least, the installer on this image could not detect the Intel
Gigabit Ethernet hardware on my box (which the etch installer had no
problem with).  There is no /lib/modules/.../drivers/net subdirectory,
and there doesn't appear to be any compiled-in support in the kernel
