00:03.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c556B Hurricane CardBus (rev 20)
Googling for your Ethernet controller ("3Com Corporation 3c556B linux")
one of the first results is:
There is a major problem with ACPI enabled in the kernel. The ethernet controller shuts down when booting and there is no way to enabled it again but to disable ACPI. This is a known bug. ACPI also disables the possibility to use suspend mode.
So my suggestion is:
a) try to disable acpi on boot
b) try to install a 2.6 kernel (if you have the default 2.4 kernel).
Maybe the issue is resolved in 2.6.
On another website
a similar netcard is reported working on a debian woody system.
