(before system installed)
When I go to the network config menu (e: Utility menu -> c: Configure
network) in the sysinst program and try to perform 'DHCP autoconfiguration',
/sbin/dhclient dies as soon as it's invoked with a message '/: write failed,
file system full' displayed.
Chipset is i810 and network card seeems to be configured okay.
I guess this is caused by lack of ramdisk and there may be the (easy)
resolution for this problem, but I still think that installation program
should provide easy way which even novices (like me :-) can easily understand.
1) boot a new boot floppy
2) press e<RET> (select 'e: Utility menus')
3) press c<RET> (select 'c: configure network')
4) press <RET> (select a network interface)
5) press <RET> (perform DHCP autoconfig)
I don't know, sorry.
