I downloaded 4 floppy images and wrote them. The boot
process was going just fine until I came to the net
detect part. I tried to detect with DHCP, which
normally works without a hitch. This time, it said the
autoconfig failed. I tried a manual setup and that
wouldn't do it either. The net drivers seem to load
correctly, as it starts PC Card services and does not
give an error. I cannot access any Debian mirrors. Any
suggestions on how to get the network to go? TX
