I just had the same problem with an Intel Etherexpress Pro 100 card which
I know is supported and autodetected because I've done the same
installation on other machines a number of times.

My problem was caused by the card not seating properly in its slot.  I
tried it in two different slots so I thought that couldn't be the problem.

Never rule out really silly causes of problems...
