Firmware is present on DVD as deb files
Switch to text console (ALT-F2)
# cd /
# ar x /cdrom/firmware/firmware-bnx2_*deb
# tar xvzf data.tar.gz
Switch back to debian installer
Jump to menu and reselect network setup entry
The modules are loaded automatically and installation continues without flaws.
You should probably first check why ~phahn/src/extern/debian-installer/packages/hw-detect/check-missing-firmware.sh doen't detect and load the missing firmware

Our version of hw-detect is incompatible with the newer linux kernel/udev:
Debian bug #725714: newer kernel do not support /dev/.udev/firmware-missing and /run/udev/firmware-missing any longer. The latest version of
check-missing-firmware.sh of hw-detect implements a workaround.
Version 1fda53e722375a3ea580f465f7e716d9a3b5da36 of check-missing-firmware.sh
has been added via a patch for hw-detect.
A test installation on IBM x3650 was successfull. No network interface problems encountered.
OK: network interfaces were configured successfully, bnx2 driver loaded
