Now I remeber i did take a photo of the message when it gives up.
I type it here:

  No NET device found.
  Hint: If you're using a Laptop, note that
  PCMCIA Network adapters are now supported
  either with 'pcmcia.img' or 'network.img'.
  please try both these bootdisks.

Not finding these images i suppose this message should be updated to refer to 
all.img and/or boot-nonfree.iso?
