Description dschin 1999-03-28 01:29:42 EST
I booted from a disk made from the bootnet.img file for an
FTP install.

I am on a DHCP network, and selected the appropriate option,
yet the installer was unable to set up networking properly.
This has happened also happened on 5.0. Once setup is
complete (from CD), DHCP works correctly.

The installer does identify a network card. I have a 3C905B.
My system is a Dell Dimention M166s, plus a Soundblaster
AWE64 (see dells website for hardware specs if you need). I
am aware of the ATX/905B bug and workaround, so this is not
the problem.

please test this with a bootnet.img dated mar 31 or later -- let
us know if this still occurs (one will be available w/ the
next starbuck release)
