Post subject: Installation with Realtek 8169?
I tried my best to search but I think I need a tip for installing on a system with a Realtek 8169 NIC. I understand the lack of non-free firmware in Aptosid but this is the NIC card. I have no network so following the non-free section doesn't due me much good. Am I supposed to go to another computer (my MAC) and download the stuff I need?
