My Ethernet card is the same as yours.

Failed to install by internet.
I installed from the CD.
(http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/6.0.2.1/amd64/iso-cd/). (Here you
may only burn the CD-1.iso)

It's a half years ago, I guess you need configure a specific kernel to
support it. ( not sure the kernel 3.0 works or not, at that time we
used 2.6.39)

Be careful about partition (bios_grub partition).
