The manual doesn't give an answer to my question.

I used the name of the card and google.
But that's beside the point.
I'll attempt rephrasing my question: was the 2.4 netinstall supposed
to autodetect NICs? If it is, did I do something wrong when it
didn't? And can I avoid it the next time.
I know that the 2.2 compact netinstall would have autodetected the
e100 card (because it has all NIC and disk drivers compiled in).
The reason I didn't go with that is that I wanted a procedure with as
few steps as possible (ie. a repeatable procedure I could make someone
else follow), to create a computer with the ext3 file system, and a
2.4-based kernel, and a minimal debian woody.
