Bug#523342: installation report Dell Optiplex 960: NIC driver not available

Package: installation-reports

Boot method: Netinstall
Image version: <Full URL to image you downloaded is best>
Date: 2009-04-09

Machine: Dell Optiplex 960
Processor: Quad 2.66 G

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot:           [0]
Detect network card:    [X]

Stop here. Can't find NIC Intel 82567. Ubuntu has it, but apparently it's not in Squeeze

Detect CD:              [ ]
Load installer modules: [ ]

Comments/Problems: I have Debian Squeeze running on 5 other machines--all fairly new Dell desktops on laptops, with virtually no problems. Just bought this new Optiplex the other day, but can't install Debian because of this lack of NIC driver.
