Hum, IIRC, I experienced the same problem as Len with all my DVD
installs: everything is okay except for network connection, which is
then available with no issue on the first boot.
Still, I installed Mageia RC with a net install thanks to boot.iso,
and there was no issue.

So the point may be elsewhere, maybe related to what andre said about his ISP?
