It is a via-Rhine card, onboard a Via K8M800 motherboard.

Sun computers. In the lane between hotel Sheetal and petrol pump, Dnyaneshwar 
paduka chowk.

been buying from him for over 6 years..

Have you searched google for the PCI id of that card which lspci gives you? It 
may not work with all it's glory but it should be able to run with basic 
functionality.

Don't worry. There are two things
- Broadband(I know it is generalization and I mean it) and NICs(Same here) 
work on linux, be assured.
- Even if it does not work in linux in first go, you can search the net via 
windows and experiment to find it out. That is where the fun is all about..:)

Chill..
