Package: debian-installer
Version: 20050216
Severity: important

[using the sarge netinst CD from 20050216]

In a server with two network interfaces, I get the following dialogue:

[!?,.] Configure the network
Your system has multiple network interfaces. Choose the one to use as
the primary network interface while installing Debian. If possible,
the first connected network interface found has been selected.

Primary network interface:
eth0: BROADCOM Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704 Gigabit Ethernet
eth1: BROADCOM Corporation NetXtreme BCM5704 Gigabit Ethernet

The user has no chance to select the right network interface.  At
least the MAC address should be displayed.

If possible, the selected primary interface should be named eth0
(nameif?) and an appropriate /etc/mactab should be created or
whatever it needs to not confuse the interfaces.

Cheers, WB
