Bug#598119: Same behaviour with actual squeeze installer

Hello Miguel

That's right.
I want to install Debian with help of the wired network card.

Interesting is:
The network card works at the beginning of the installation:
The autmatic network setup works:
There was an ip-address received via DHCP.
But, after partitioning the hard-disk, eth0 is down.

> Isn't debian installer great? :)

Yes, that's right.
Thanks for the great work.

Thanks for the hint.
This Notebook was manufactured 2004.
At this time, i have started with Linux.
2004, i had no experience with firmware and other closed-source software
for Linux.

Kind regards
