you can reconfigure you network anytime from a terminal, w/the netconfig command. are the modules loaded for the card? post the output of the following commands as root or su

lspci -v

lsmod

ifconfig -a

good luck.

as long as the modules for the nic are loaded, and the nic is functioning properly, you should be able to set up the network during install using dhcp, or reconfigure it later also using dhcp.
good luck.

i have that card, using on-board nic now. it doesn't play nice with other pci cards( seems to want the same interrupt as the sound card). might want to look at the bios, see if it's sharing an interrupt with anything. i had to physically move cards around to get it to work right on my abit board. just a thought
