PS : aren't you confusing "netinst" with "netboot", which requires a network connection to a mirror ?

There used to be bootable business card netinst images that had almost nothing other than the kernel and the installer, and needed a mirror to get even a minimally functional system. I think the kernel+installer got too porky for those images in the last couple of releases.
