Yes, it was, sorry.

Problem solved, thanks you all.

Computer was IBM x3550 with two NetXreme2 cards. By default, Debian
doesn't have appropriate driver (it's non-free). Commonly, when
installer cannot find network card, he asks user for driver. BUT new
revision of x3550 (M3) has a management card ("USB Net"), and Debian
has a driver for this card. Installer finds this card and uses it as
the primary one (despite no link).
Inserting USB-flqash with bnx2 driver and forcing installer to read it
solves this problem.
