Challenge to the debian community: ethernet controller doesn't work in debian but in: SuSE, Fedora, Gentoo !!

I don't believe it:
my Dell onboard ethernet controller can't be configured in Debian Sarge but
runs smoothly in Suse, Fedora an Gentoo-Live and Knoppix...
and I cannot find or get help in Usenet and via google ??
Come on, debian community: take that chalenge !
installed , for my first Debian try, Debian Sarge from the "LinuxUser"
magazine's DVD. After some hurldles it worked but:
did'nt configure any network card, (and following eth0 etc.)
When I try to configure with modconf from the debian sarge set, I don't know
which driver to choose, and try-and-error with this long list of drivers
didn't help and doesn't make sense...
I have a Dell Dimension 8300 with a ethernet controller onboard, and the
system info tool in kde detects:
"Ethernet controller : Intel Corp.: Unknown device 1050 (rev02)
Subsystem : Dell Computer Corp. Unknown device 0157"
"lspci -v" shows the controller the same way as in Suse and the others...
Can anyone help ?
