I'm using http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/dists/unstable/main/installer-i386/current/images/floppy/

Now, the output of lspci is impossible to give you since lspci isn't
provided with the shell that those boot floppies provide.  However,
here is the content of /proc/pci/ after boot-up.  (This was
complicated to get as well, since the machine isn't connected to the
network, copied it to a floppy, and then onto another machine, since
the laptop I'm posting this from doesn't have a floppy drive *Sigh*)

Just doesn't seem to see the network card at all...


Thanks for any sugestions,
