Could you try disconnecting (either physically or from the BIOS if possible)
one of the cards ? (the one used for the intranet)

I can confirm a similar situation, also with Dapper Flight 2. Two network 
cards, only one connected to the internet, neither the installer nor the 
network config tool would let me get a DHCP connection to the DSL router
going. Same problem with the Ubuntu 5.10 installer. HOWEVER, 

* the Ubuntu 5.10 live CD connects to the DHCP server just fine, even with
  the two cards present.
* after disconnecting the spare ethernet card (I disallowed it from BIOS),
  I rebooted, and this time I could configure the DHCP connection with no
  problems from the nework config tool (in the Control Center)
