ethernet driver/dell I-1200

Hello, all, again.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1200, I just got done dual-partitioning it and dual-booting it so everything is just right... Except I can't seem to get the ethernet port to be seen. I can't get it on the net, so it's difficult for me to just plainly search for it. I am wondering if there is a way to command-line something to make it look there? every driver I see won't work. says "device does not show signs of activating, delaying activation". so it's not working.
