Network Card Drivers Support When Installing Debian

I'm installing Debian 3.0 and all seemed well until I got to the Network setup. I cant seem to get it to recognize my network card at all. (I've got a 3com 3c905) card. This card has been around for a while...strange it doesnt support it - does anyone have any suggestions? Which network cards will work? Help...

You need to do modconf as root then go down to the net card drivers and install the relevant driver.
