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...
