dell vostro NIC problem!

Hi guys, we just bought a new dell vostro machine for red hat 4 and although the install went well, the NIC card is not found

Im pretty new to this particular error, is it possible for any of you guys to point me in the right direction getting the machine to see the NIC card?

When I type the command lspci –v I get the message: Ethernet controller: Intel corporation: unknown device and some other data about memory address's etc

Is there anyway to locate the correct drivers?

I would really appreciate some assistance with this matter as we need the machine up pretty quickly!

First step would be to visit the intel website.

They're usualy quite good at providing linux drivers.
