Found the cause, I'll see if i can get the images updated soon.

# Do NOT offer to install proprietary firmware
d-i hw-detect/load_firmware boolean false

The mini.iso from 2009-12-03 first asks for language, country and keyboard layout. Then there's a quick progress bar while it detects network hardware. On my laptop (i386) I then get:

------| [!] Detect network hardware |-------

Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate. The firmware can be loaded from removable media, such as a USB stick or floppy.

The missing firmware files are: isl3886

If you have such media available now, insert it, and continue.

Load missing firmware from removable media?

   [<Yes>]       <No>

Graziano got it too on his laptop (amd64). See also this thread from early December: http://www.mail-archive.com/gnewsense-dev@nongnu.org/msg01463.html.
