First I downloaded this ISO:

Then I burned it onto a CD-R, and booted into
the installer.

The computer is a HP Compaq 6720s laptop.

However the installer doesn't get far before it
says the network needs nonfree firmware, namely

     b43/ucode13.fw
     b43-open/ucode13.fw

Despite searching explicitly on the CD the
assessment stands.

After that, the network
auto-config/DHCP/connect fail.

What's going on? Is that firmware not included
even in the firmware edition of Debian?

Is this what you are looking for:
