Downloaded the netinst and it behaves the same, with a screen that
prompts for external media to provide the non-free firmware.

I'm speculating that for some reason, since the firmware is non-free it
does not ship with the installation media. 

I was under the impression that I had found this particular firmware in
the pcmcia package, which as far as I know is not in the non-free repos,
so I'm a bit confused. 

Or is it the renaming from 3CCFEM556.dat to 3CCFEM556.cis?
