The first google search I did turned this up -->http://steveswinsburg.wordpress.com/...-ubuntu-10-04/

You need to learn to use google.

In a kosole, run the command 'lspci' without quotes, and confirm you have the same chip set as the instructions. If not, post the results here.

I have a feeling the site linked to may be out of date as it is from this time last year and the site I linked to suggests that support for your card has now been added to the kernel Debian uses.
