The next spet I would try is to install using another kernel. Debian
offers several installation kernels on the first CD, including
2.4.18-bf2.4. Read the instructions after you boot from the CD. If you
already installed the system and everything works fine except the
network card, install some other kernel image via apt-get and try that
one. However most of the kernel images in packaged form are on CD 5.
