This is a known problem. If you do a FULL (not only base) install,
several packages will be downloaded from internet, but it is not
at all easy for FreeDOS to automatically configure the internet.
It often hangs. I think it should not be done like that by default.

My standard recommendation is to install without the packages which
require internet during install. Of course you can always add the
internet stuff again later :-). For a list of packages, check:
