That's an nVidia nForce2 Ethernet controller. http://pciids.sourceforge.net/iii/?i=10de Should be supported to some extent (if you have the onboard MCP MAC enabled) via the binary-only Linux driver: see the net/nvnet port. You'll probably have to borrow another NIC in order to get the system installed and then build yourself a kernel and install the net/nvnet port after that.
