Hi all,

I'm trying to install Debian Lenny on a HP DL180 G6 server.

This server seems to have an Intel network card which needs the e1000

But for some reason it's not recognized because using the netinstaller it
asks what kind of network card is in the server.

I see that the e1000 driver is in the list but it does nothing with it.

Could it be that the bundled e1000 driver in the netinstaller is to old?

It would help to know the PCI vendor and device IDs of the network card.
Does the installer let you switch to a terminal with CTRL + ALT + F2 (or
another function key)? In that case you can try to run "lspci -nn" and
find the line(s) of the ethernet controller(s). The relevant information
will be (almost) at the end of the line(s); it consists of two
four-digit hexadecimal numbers that are separated by a colon and
enclosed in square brackets (an example: "[10ec:8139]").

You could also try one of Kenshi Muto's customized Lenny installer
images, they have newer kernels:
