Biostar nForce 6100-939 on board ethernet card isn't detected by Linux Debian Sarge

As I was installing Linux Debian Sarge it said there is an error detecting my ethernet card. Then it showed me a list to choose my card from. No dice, it's not there. In the manual it says:

10/100 LAN PHY

Should I install linux anyway and maybe there are drivers for it that I can download later on?

Please share a solution.

That looks like a Realtek 8201. according to this:

the 8239 driver should work but have you checked in case the Linux Driver is on the mobo CDROM?
