Well, as a temporary workaround (there should be a good way though) you
could try to boot into the 6.10 livecd, configure your network from there,
then copy the file /etc/network/interfaces to a USB drive or something
(perhaps email it to yourself) and then on your 7.04 installation replace
the /etc/network/interfaces file with the one you copied from the 6.10livecd.
