Talking [Debian 3]PCI Network card not recognized


I just purchased an ACER Aspire PC and managed to get KDE, Apache, PHP and MySQL installed.
Now I try to install networking, but it looks like the kernel has no module for the eth0 card.
It's probably an nVidia PCI gigabit 10/100/1000, but I'm not sure.
So either I find a module for it and I recompile the kernel, or I buy another PCI card, but which one?

I'll get by with a little big help from my friends

I didn't know nVidia did PCI networking cards, just the built in ones, but they are very good with drivers for Linux ( even is they are closed source ) so may want to check their site. nVidia Website
