I tried using unetbootin and the netinstall.  It progressed through
formatting the partitions and choosing where to install the bootloader,
then died with an unhandled exception.  (This is on an Asus EEE PC

In my case, it automatically activated wireless (which I didn't want)
and ignored the wired.  When setting the host name, there's an option to
configure network, though, where you can go in and change things with
the NM interface.  I hate that interface and do my best to avoid it, but
I realize that the fact that I don't like it doesn't
mean it's bad.

Sometimes though, I think it's a battle between my generation and the
smartphone generation.

actually there it would've been like Woodstock. I was at 
Woodstock. I fed off a flower person and I spent six hours 
watching my hand move.
