The network card is probably not recognized.  You might want to send
those logs to pgi-users@lists.progeny.com.

This problem might also be fixed in the version of discover-data in sid.
It remains to be seen whether the Stable Release Manager will accept a
new version of discover-data into woody for the sake of recognizing more
hardware.  If an update to discover-data will solve your problem, it
might be worth asking him.  However, updates to make installs work
better aren't security fixes, so he might say "no".
