Which network card? It's very possible that the INSTALL_TINY kernel is
compiled without its support. I would suggest compiling a custom
INSTALL_TINY kernel with the support for your card added, and using that
kernel in the boot-tiny filesystem instead of the INSTALL_TINY kernel.

Basically, it just involves doing everything sysinst does, but manually,
while skipping any steps which aren't completely necessary and use too
