According to this information, your NIC needs the sungem driver, which 
_is_ included in the installer and should be loaded automatically.

After the installer has failed to detect your NIC, please try the 
- switch to VT2
- check if the sungem module is loaded ('lsmod | grep sungem')
- if it is, check dmesg for any messages about the NIC
- if it is not, try to load it manually ('modprobe sungem')
