That's an nVidia nForce2 Ethernet controller.


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.
