As far as I found out it uses also the sk98lin driver.
But the standard driver that comes along with the debian amd 64 cd fails the installation.

It's a bug in the installation image, it's known to fail to load the module even though it detects it fine. During installation, you have to choose the option to execute a shell, run "modprobe -f sk98lin", which initialises the NIC, possibly bring up and configure the interface with the appropriate ifconfig command and friends, and from then on you should be fine. I have such a beast working under my desk right now, with pure64 installed, and had no other problem with it. I am currently running a kernel compiled from the stock debian sources, 2.6.10.
