isa network cards

I'm still trying to get slackware to do a decent install but always run in the problem that it's installing too much useless packages and gives me the feeling I'll have time to start and finish college and get a job for a computer that can take red hat, before it's finished installing. I hate the fact that it has no progress meter and installs so many useless packages. *cough windows xp*

Anyway, just for fun I went to network install to see if it at least supports my isa network card, and no go. Does this mean it won't detect it once it's installed (if that happends). ? Can I download drivers for it? Is there a way to find out what IRQ it's on, as sometimes I need to specify that and I think this is the case here.

I have no clue what it is, just know it's a Dlink and it's pretty big.

Rip it out of the box and have a read ... with that
info you can't really do too much.
All cards have some specific number on them
(forgot what it's called) but googling for it may
reveal the model/make of the card.
