Can I indetify my LAN card? For a SuSE install.

I want to give SuSE a shot so I burned the iso boot disk and went to do the ftp install but SuSE wanted me to install a network module. I have no idea what lan card I've got. It was years ago I put that card in. I have no idea what model it is. I'd really rather not have to open my case. It's not especially accessable and it's a big hassle. Is there anyway I can identify what NIC I'm using with Mandrake 9.1?

yeah that command displayed my card as a realtek but when I select any of the Realtek cards SuSE asks me for more 'parameters' and I have no idea what to put there.
