Which module to load for Buffalo PCMCIA NIC?

I have a Buffalo Cardbus 10/100M LPC5-CLX-CB PCMCIA LAN Card that I wanna use for the installation of Debian... which module to load? Coz I don't have a CD-Rom in my laptop, hence the best option is to use network installation.

Found out the correct module to load should be axnet_cs.o but as far as I can google, such module is compiled for kernel 2.4 > but the Debian installation is kernel 2.2.20.

Anybody who's using kernel 2.2.20 < system with such file and kind enough to send a copy to me? And it seems to me that I could find the source code of axnet_cs.c but I don't have a kernel 2.2.20 system to compile the source code. Any help would be appreicated.

I happen to be searching for an axnet_cs.o too, but then compiled for kernel 2.0.30, for my laptop, but I might go and compile it myself; I only cannot seem to find the source code. Do you perhaps know where you can find that? Once I have compiled it, maybe its use to you -- at least its older than 2.4, which is the oldest I can find as well.
