Trouble Installing Debian Squeeze Using Netinst

I got up to the part where I select the download mirror. No matter what mirror I choose I get an error:

mirror does not support the selected release (squeeze)
Through some Google searches I decided it was because the Debian netinst doesn't come with the proper ethernet drivers for my computer. How do I find out what driver I should download and how do I go about running it on install?

What kind of ethernet card do you have?
