Are you saying that your card wasn't found by the bootup process ( /var/log/dmesg) or that it appears there and
doesn't show any eth0?

The terminology you are using isn't clear. When you say you couldn't find the controller, it isn't clear how or what you used to look for it. Are you talking about seeing it with the hardware browser or something like that?
I think you'll have to provide some details before anyone can help you. Post your /var/log/dmesg file.
