You need linux-2.4.19 or later in order to get the e1000 driver.  The
older linux-2.4.18 did not have it.

This is really a question of kernels and not of debian-installer.  But
yes, the beta 4 does have a newer kernel and so the driver is there.

You can always use a driver disk.  Easier to get a newer kernel.
