Hi
Spent a half hour looking, no luck,
is it in a laptop? if not, why not install cheap pci network card? just did that on neighbours computer, about £5, works fine on Bianca. (Was better than going insane trying to find her "xyzzy driver" :) )

Or try http://www.linuxemporium.co.uk/products/hardware/

it comes back as "strlist forcedeth", but still no luck so it looks like a PCI network card.

have you investigated

assuming this is a 6150 gigabyte.Nvidia 430 motherboard
perhaps using alien on suse 10 drivers will get you a debian file that gdebi could handle?
