Network card not detected by debian 3.1


Hi everyone,
Debian installer can not detect my network card.
Motherboard : epox 9npa ultra nforce 4 chipset socket939
I want to install debian 3.1 unstable for i386 architecture on my amd 64 bit architecture because as i read from internet 64 bit is not fully supported from debian.
Please help me to provide debian to detect my onboard network interface card.

First, there is no such thing as "debian 3.1 unstable." Version 3.1 is Debian Stable. Second, Debian's 64-bit support is probably more advanced than any other, but 64-bit OSes are not as fully developed as 32-bit ones.

For that reason, I recommend that you carry on with your plan to install the 32-bit version. What you need is the Etch Beta3 installer. I recommend the Netinstall variation, about a 100MB .iso, but full cd sets are also available at that site. Be sure you get the correct distribution, there are many different ones available. Presumeably, the i386 one is what you want.

Sorry for my post.It's a big mistake. You are right there is no unstable version.
Also as i mentioned before "not fully supported" so i don't want to mention that debian's 64 bit architecture support is not good.
Thanks for your answer and now i'm going to implement what you said in your post.
