If the card is not detected during installation, you have to do the detective work of finding an appropriate driver by your own (if one exists at all).
Determine the exact type of the card and use this information in a google search in conjunction with the keyword "linux". The search function of linuxquestions.org might also find some helpful information.
If it is a pci card, try to determine its vendor/product id by typing
This id consists of two 4 digit hex numbers in the form XXXX:XXXX.
Try that one in a google search as well.
