Probably. If I'm not mistaken, this card uses the newer e1000e driver
(instead of the e1000), which is available from Ubuntu 8.04 default
kernel. If your pci id is 8086:294c, I know the last version (7.10)
worked, as I tested it (unfortunately for me, Debian does not, but
that's a whole other story).

You can try the livecd to be sure before installing, but I'm almost
sure it does.
