Yup, the card is there.  That's good ...

Well, that depends on your network ... if they're using DHCP you
should use a DHCP client.  Debian has three that I know of: pump,
dhcpcd, and dhcp-client.  I've had the best luck with dhcp-client,
though your experience may be different.

Once you configure your IP settings either manually or via DHCP,
make sure the output of `ifconfig' lists both lo and eth0
interfaces.  `netstat -rn' should show a network route for your
ethernet segment and a default route.  Try to ping the gateway for the
default route.  If you can't ping the gateway something is screwed up
with your ethernet or with your IP settings.  If you can ping the
gateway but can't get out to the world something (or someone) is
blocking your traffic.

Make sure you haven't installed any firewalling packages; those can
cause a lot of trouble if you're trying to get setup for the first
