What does 'lspci' say about it?  For example, my system :

$ lspci   # (irrelevant data snipped)
00:08.0 Ethernet controller: Lite-On Communications Inc LNE100TX [Linksys EtherFast 10/100] (rev 25)
00:09.0 Ethernet controller: Linksys Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 model NC100 (rev 11)

This tells me that my ethernet cards are Linksys LNE100TX.  With that
info, a google search tells me they are 'tulip' clones, and use the
tulip driver.

With info (from lspci) about which chip is your ethernet controller,
we'll be able to do a decent google search and find out which driver
to use.
