The AV Macs use MACE Ethernet which does not work in the kernel supplied
with Debian Potato.
Andrew McPherson posted the following links to the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list a few days back. These are
supposed to contain beta drivers for MACE Ethernet.
Note: I don't have a system with MACE Ethernet, but others have posted
with some success using the 2.2.16 kernel. 2.4.X still has other issues
is probably only for the brave and experienced.
