Package: netcfg
Version: 20040618
Severity: normal

If I install on a system without a network card, it obviously fails
to detect one, then prompts me to insert drivers manually. If
I select 'none of the above' then I am told I can load from floppy.
If I say no, then I am back to the manual selection.

Only <escape> will get me to the menu.

I think netcfg should do one of the following, or even both:

1. In expert mode, ask the user whether there is a network card, and
only if yes, then try to detect and configure it.

2. Display 'no network card present' as one (the first?) of the
choices in the manual selection box.

I'm closing this bug, since it was tagged "wontfix" for some
years, without answer. If you have new reasons to point out this
problem, please feel free to re-open it or ask me to do it.

You still can have the Installer behave in the way you wanted by doing
the install with a lower priority.

Thanks for reporting!
