Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-12 22:19:20 UTC
During installation there was no network configuration screen. I have an ISA NE2000. Surely the screen should be visible even if the installer can't successfully probe the card? Perhaps with 'Just press Next if you don't have a network card' in the help text.

It would seem that you can configure the card if you look for SCSI cards. The kudzu? like program will ask if you have other devices in your machine. The only options on this are: SCSI Network From this I was able to configure my network card in the install.

This has been reported before, and can be worked around with the isa boot disk option, but I'm in favor, of popping up a dialog with something like: No network cards where found, would you like to select one manually? Yes / No, I don't have a (supported) network card

This is the purpose of "expert" mode. A standard installation is supposed to be very simple with a minimum of questions. By not asking about an unprobed network card (or any non-essential card for that matter) we do not bring about the trouble of "I am not sure whether I have a network card or not" and "What is a network card?" Expert mode will disable all probing and allow you to specify that hardware that you have installed on the system. If the user knows they have ISA cards which they would like to configure at install time, then they should run the installation in expert mode.
