See dman's reply for what you should do now. For future reference (and
for other readers) you can get your NIC up and running in the initial
installation procedure at the point where it asks you to choose which
kernel modules you want to load. choose eepro100 (in your case, or
whatever your NIC is in other readers' cases) under the 'net' category,
and it will be loaded instantly (so that you can complete the install
via http or ftp) and set up to load at every boot automatically.
