You can successfully install potato with this NIC, but not using the
"standard" boot floppy set. I've successfully installed using the IDEPCI
set. I believe the IDE set also works.

Once you've got the basic system installed you can compile your own
kernel and include any other modules you need that might be missing from
this flavor of rescue/root/drivers floppies.
