just want to second this as a viable option. I had an install where
the netinstall could not get the network up, so carried on without
it. Once booted into the real (very minimal system) network came up no
problem and i proceeded from there. This only works, of course, if the
drivers are in the main kernel image package but may not necessarily
be in the kernel that netinstall boots for the install...
