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.
