Last time I tried to download the non-free firmware and put it on

be for the installer to find it.

Because the docs are so vague about that and the installer didn't
bother to log the path it was looking at to any log that I was able to
find.

And yes, I am a DD and should be able to figure that out.

FWIW, I've had the same experience. I think it is time to revisit firmware distribution on easily-accessible images.
