I have the problem on install the redhat 6.1 on network
My network adapter is a PCI NE2000, but the module not is in
network image.

The NE2000 module is indeed in the installer image.  If it is not
getting loaded automatically, then you will want to run in the
installer in expert mode and specify your hardware manually.  To run
the installer in expert mode, just type "expert" at the boot prompt.
Reopen this bug if you continue to have problems.

Yes, on my test I load the module with the expert mode on install of
redhat 6.1, but there is the option of ne2000 and pci ne2000 on normal
install of redhat 6.1.
It is a bug?

"NE1000, NE2000, and compatible" option doesn't work on my isa-NE2000-
card, here's the error:

"/tmp/ne.o: init_module: Device or resource busy"

Redhat 6.0 ftp-installation worked just fine. The card is from Edimax
and plug'n'play is off and it works on 6.0. Haven't tried the expert
mode yet, but defining the settings(irq, resource) didn't help.
