Figured one out on my own
Ok, I couldn;t find an answer anywhere sop I figured it out on my own.
When the installer wants to reboot , select the option "Go Back". You are given a list of things to do. One of the last options is "execute a shell" Select this option. Then a message appears that the image is on ramdisk and tells you how to mount it. Mount it and go to boot/grub/menu.lst
vi is not available to edit. You have to use "nano" to edit the file. Insert kernel options. SAve the new menu.lst Exit the shell by typing "exit". Then allow the installer to reboot.
Upon reboot the installer enters phase 2. The NIC is now detected and finds an IP adress! Installation resumes and completes successfully!!! Hello Ubunto Breezy!
