You are obviously the right person to ask, then.  Will this method 
help me?  I can see (slightly fuzzily still at the mo) that I can use 
the Knoppix to get the rest of the install carried out. But surely, 
once I reboot into the newly installed system, I will once again lose 
the NIC driver.  It appears that Knoppix and Mandrake have a working 
driver for this net-lynx 428X, and Debian doesn't.  Or am I missing 
the important bit (again...)?

Sounds almost irresistable... You might find me there one day soon.
