Xubuntu Alternate 9.04 Broadcom b43 firmware not online

Bug Description

Jaunty Jackalope: xubuntu-9.04-alternate-i386.iso

A dated laptop Pentium 266 (256MB) IBM iSeries model 2611-450 (yenta bridge)
cannot load Broadcom b43 driver firmware (because unavailable ) so networking
initialization phase cannot complete
Looking for override.

Is there Any workaround for adding the firmware on the fly (during the install sequence)?

I should say I was running 8.10 with CardBus PCMCIA b43 HW but I did not install 8.10 with
b43 HW (I added the card later). So when I go to 9.04 it does not seem to support it directly from
within the install sequence framework. It loads the driver but cannot load the firmware.
