how are you installing, how far are you exactly with your installation? What does the screen all say?

I'll use install walkthrough as a reference to where I am.

stuck on step 14, and cant get out of it untill neweork is configured (which is impossibility right now....).

All I need is to skip nework conifig step.

Can't you just enter a wrong configuration and accept that? You could try entering a manual configuration... (just a guess)

strange: you say you are installing the latest Debian, but you are using a manual from the Debian 3.0 installation (I consider Sarge or Sid the latest Debian, but maybe you don't...), and you also say your distro is a knoppix HD-install... ???
