Bug#601340: Debian Installation asks for rtl8168d-2.fw (but I can't find it and some apps need it to run).

Package: rtl8168d-2.fw
Severity: important

When I was installing Debian Squeeze on this PC, I was asked about some non-
free firmware for my NIC (rtl8168d-2.fw). I didn't have it. But anyway, I was
able to install the system (downloading files from the mirror), surf the
internet after the installation (Iceweasel, Epiphany) and even download
updates. The problem is that the network icon always showed the information
"connection not present" (something like that). The "real" problems started
when I was trying to use Evolution and configure my e-mail. I realized that it
could not connect because it said "no connection". I think it's the lack of
firmware that is affecting these other programs.
