Is that a network card? Firstly you'll need a driver module. I believe the right one is called "natsemi.o". So, as root, you would type modprobe natsemi (no ".o"). If that causes no errors then do a ifconfig eth0 up. That should bring your ethernet interface up. Check it by just typing ifconfig and look for an "eth0" section. If you get to this stage, your card is ready to run. You then need to configure your network.
