Okay,

For starters, have you installed the card physically, is it "bolted" in the box? If so, issue

in the console, that issues a list of installed hardware, look for your lan card. If it's in there, your card works/is detected/is usable, then, run the install procedure for the OS in question...

Luck

1st run this:

Welcome to LQ.

PHP Code:
ifconfig -
If it shows a HWADDR then the driver is loaded, other wise run this:

PHP Code:
lspci -
to get the chipset information about the ethernet adapter.
