I haven't, because I was trying to install Debian Stable.
I understand I could try to install Stable with the daily builds,
I've been avoiding this since there has been a lot of flux these
past few months and I was waiting for a fix for #568495.
I'll try the daily and report back.
I did try out kmuto's builds (http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/),
build 0116 does have support for this network card.
When I can get the current stable kernel installed (2.6.26-24lenny1)
I can report whether the card is supported or not.
