can't -- install kernel fails
I've just booted up an old Olivetti Echos Pro150S notebook from floppy
with a xircom ethernet card (xi0 driver).  I'm experiencing the same
that has been reported in this mail by someone else some time ago:

when installation proceeds to get the ip via dhcp, I get device
timeouts from the card.  So this problem still exists in 1.6.1
(in the mail above, it was reported against 1.5.2).
