Ok time for problem #1!
I'm doing a network install because the CDROM can't read burned CDs properly. Now the problem that I'm having is that when I get to screen saying "Which driver should I try" for the network card driver, I choose RTL8139 (which I'm certain is the right one), it just goes back to the previous screen asking if I want to install NFS, FTP or HTTP. So I can't proceed with the installation.
I've downloaded the network boot disk ver 2.2 off their website and tried the 2.1 version as well and get the same thing. I've tried changing the NIC to a different PCI slot and making sure it's properly installed, no difference.
Why can't I proceed with this installation?
