Description of problem:
If installer doesn't automatically detect driver for the network card (3com 3c509, ISA) it allows to select it from the list. After manual selection driver is successfully loaded (message on the another virtual console) but installer reports failure and suggest to select the driver (successfully loaded 3c509 - Etherlink III - is no more in the list), so network installation is impossible.
