try running 'modprobe bf44' as root from a terminal window. then use 'ifconfig eth0 up' to turn the NIC on. if that doesnt work post output of 'ifconfig -a', 'lspci', 'lsmod', and 'dmesg'. or search google.com/linux or here at lq.org for broadcom 440, it has been discussed many times.

Isn't there a support in kernel for this network card? Just compile the support in kernel and your all set up. I use Broadcom support in kernel but I'm not 100% sure of the model as it might have been 4400. I use Acer Travelmate 4202WLMi.

there is built in support for broadcom 440 in the kernel 2.6 just try recompiling with support built into the kernel.. that should do it!
