    no network after converting to new motherboard

    I run debian lenny 5.0.2 off a 4gb compact flash. After installing a new VIA M830 motherboard from a VIA MII12000 board, I cannot get any ethernet connection. When doing a fresh debian install from the netinst, it does not recognize the networking hardware. However, if I run a live CD (debian-live-502-i386-gnome-desktop.iso) networking work fine. Any ideas on either updating drivers or installing the live CD to a hard drive?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    The live CD/DVD probably has more drivers and firmware than the netinst has. What is the network gear you are trying to get working? Also, is this a wired network, or wireless?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
