Hi Xiaozheng,

I have a Abit KV8 Pro with I think the same netcard builtin and it would 
not recognize it either. Try using the CTRL + ALT +F2 keys at the same 
time to switch to the second virtual terminal then use modprobe 
via-velocity to load the module for the card then try to set your IP 
address. Of course you would use CTRL + ALT +F1 keys at the same time 
to switch back to the installer terminal.
