My first sugestion would be to crack open your case and take a look at your card and see what it says. If you don't see anything or its integrated and you can't even find the chip then it will be a bit harder.

If you system is dual boot with winodows take a look and see what chip windows says its using.

Otherwise, use a LiveCD like Gentoo and boot with it. Once you are at the prompt type lsmod and see what module it loaded.

as root
lspci -v
if there's no NIC's listed there's hope it
might be ISA PnP, so
pnpdump

If both don't bring up any info, open your box ;)

Cheers,
Tink
