The installer does not bother to try to autodetect ISA ethernet cards.
Once it fails to detect the card it will prompt you with a list of
modules and types of cards. Since this is a ne2k clone you should select
the ne module. It's possible that simply loading the module with no
parameters will fail, if so the installer will prompt you for module
parameters and you may need to pass it io port and irq info; see the
kernel docs for the ne module and/or your card for details.

Alternatively, spend $15 on a decent pci network card..
