Choosing NIC driver during install


I have been having a hard time with my NICs, I have tried to install both a kingston isa card and a realtek ne2000 compatible PCI card, but can't get debina to recognize either one during install. I have moved the pci card around in different slots, and took out the sound card/modem in case of irq conflicts, but to no avail. Would it make sense to just install the OS and configure the NIC later?

Yes it would if you continue to have problems with it. The module it should be looking for is ne2k-pci for the realtek card and the kernel should find it as long as you are using the bf2.4 during install it is compiled in so there is no need to load a module if this is what you are hung up on.
Code:
stephen@SleepyTux:~$ grep NE2K_PCI /boot/config-2.4.18-bf2.4
CONFIG_NE2K_PCI=y
