Re: Fwd: Re: Probably a stupid question but...

Pissing around with the "expert" mode of install leads me to belive that some 
(possibly all) the network modules are missing from the installer as well as 
some other modules.  In an attempt to get around this I installed another 
network card in the machine and tried to boot again.  Same failure but 
different module.

So far the missing (or mismatched) modules are:

tg3 (network)
8139too (network)

Now without a network card I cannot continue - am I just unlucky insofar as 
the two network cards I have tried are just too exotic to make it onto the CD 
(seems unlikely) or is there a problem with the installer (in which case what 
do I do?),
