So it turns out this may be a problem with a chipset or some HW other
than the USB storage device. The USB storage device will, at various
stages in the installation, "disappear" (there is no more /dev/sda*) and
then "reappear" (there is now /dev/sdb*). Mounting it again at /cdrom
and /target/media/cdrom allows me to carry on the installation.

If you have a 11th gen Intel machine that could be an issue. Devuan 3
installer didn't find the NIC. So I opted to try 4.
