what version of ltsp are you using?

the version that comes with debian-edu's LTSP just uses the standard
debian kernel; most if not all network cards supported by debian should
be supported without configuration.

do you know what module it needs?

for a variety of reasons, including very inacurate responses, and
significant differences between versions of ltsp on gutsy and
debian-edu, i wouldn't spend much time on that page.

basically, someting like this:

 # add network card for your module:
 $editor /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/initramfs-tools/modules
 chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
 mount -t proc proc proc
 apt-get update
 apt-get dist-upgrade
 apt-get install $packages
 # if it didn't update your kernel:
 update-initramfs -u -k all
 umount /proc

good luck.

live well,
