Which netinst CD did you download?  Which e1000 card do you have?  Maybe
the output of `lspci -vvv` showing the section for that card?

Thanks for the prompt response!

I'm using the i386 netinst.  The ethernet card is an intel 1000gigabit ethernet pro.  When I boot to the cd and go into a second terminal, lspci doesn't run.  I guess it doesn't come with the netinst livecd.
