What does 'lspci -n | grep 0200' show on the box?  That should get a
list of all ethernet devices.

Are you trying to install with netinstaller iso or have you setup a system from full media? 

If is of course very possible that the 2.6.26 kernel in Debian 5.0 does
not support the network card if the machine is less than 2 years old.
If so there isn't much choice other than use a newer kernel (2.6.32 is
in backports so it would be easy to install and use).
