Well...I had trouble finding the stage tarballs the first time I used a 2004.1 boot disk, too. What disk did you download? There is a minimal install (which used to have the stage1 and nothing else) that has no tarballs on it. And then there are the other ones.

After you change root in, if net-setup doesnt work you can manually edit the config files for the applicable network interface in /etc/conf.d/net.
