You have a strange idea of details.  And thats about how far it goes
in that section too.

But in the threads here I've put together a whole plan of
attack. Involving editing the sources.list.  Knowing how to get going
with the nic.  A series of commands for apt-get that clean things up
and get ready to install a more fleshed out system. 

I suspect there is a smallish outline of things to do that would make
it pretty clear how to conduct a network install.

Some of that needs to be in that section.   I don't think its enough
to say, you can do it by ftp or http.
