I used VirtualBox to install a Squeeze guest VM. The configuration had
three NICs: eth0 and eth1 are internal networks (with no DHCP) and
eth2 is NAT'd with DHCP. Even though I selected eth2 in the installer,
DHCP failed. I went back into the VM configuration and disabled eth0
and eth1, leaving eth2 with the NAT active. I was then able to
install. Afterwards I shut down, re-enabled eth0 and eth1, booted, and
fixed up udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and
/etc/network/interfaces and everything worked fine.

I wonder if there is something in the installer that prevents the
third interface from being able to successfully get an address via
DHCP. (I didn't try doing the same but with only two interfaces: one
with NAT and DHCP and the other without as I have successfully
installed in that configuration before on physical hardware.)

thank you for submitting installation reports, much appreciated.

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they were caused by broken hardware and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are quite old (and thus likely fixed today).

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - thats often better, as the bug log 
will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
