OK! You were right, I didn't know that.

Ironic thing is, I went to do this in another
building, and there, the DHCP didn't fail with
ordinary Ethernet! So I just installed the
system. Remember first thing I said with
another Debian computer, Ethernet worked, only
I had to do 'dhclient eth0' every time?
Perhaps that was what didn't make DHCP possible
on the install machine. With this other
connection, there were no problems! God willing
everything will run fine from now on.
Thanks for all the help :)
