Package: install
Severity: normal

When installing using a netinstall you are prompted to select a network
card with a list like:
  eth0: Broadcom .......
  eth1: Broadcom ......

It really should show the MAC address to let you distinguish which
interface you intend to use; in my case I have a set of Dell PE 1955
blades where the ether card the BIOS sees as the first device is seen
as eth1 under Debian and I know the Mac address of the appropriate one.
