Is that one of the on-the-motherboard implementations that use the 21041 chip? The Ethernet HowTo lists a number of Intel cards (and which driver works) but that controller isn't in the list.

According to the HowTo (howto.tucows.com/LDP/HOWTO/Ethernet-HOWTO-5.html#ss5.22),

"Note that the naming of the various Intel cards is ambiguous and confusing at best. If in doubt, then check the i8xxxx number on the main chip on the card or for PCI cards,use the PCI information in the /proc directory and then compare that to the numbers listed here."

So it wouldn't hurt to take a peek at /proc/pci and see what it has for the Ethernet. If you don't understand what to look for, paste those lines in a comment (usually three-five lines beginning with "Ethernet"). My reading of the blurb on Intel's page suggests to me that you may not be able to find a driver for it at the moment.

Ok... Let's go from the beginning:

 Did you set Non-PNP OS in the BIOS?

 Does the kernel detect the board in the start-up?

 Did you probe it or select a module?

 What does the module tell about it?
