Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

First, kudos on the graphical installer.  It went
quite smoothly.

I have an Intel G3-based motherboard with both 8169 ethernet and
firewire.  The installer offers firewire as the first choice for
network, despite the fact that I had a live ethernet connection
plugged into the ethernet jack.

After installing and booting into the new system, I found that the
ethernet port was configured as eth1 instead of eth0.

This seems counter-intuitive.  I must admit I wasn't even aware you
could do tcp-ip networking over firewire.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from Etch which isn't supported
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
