ehternet card and linux on 8770C

I installed red hat 7.0 on my 8770C.

I use verizon DSL with my windows. I want to use DSL with linux. However, it looks like the BIOS is configured as PnP enabled and so it wont tell the OS about the ethernet card. Iam not able to toggle this feature of the BIOS.

(prompt) > ifconfig eth0

gives an error saying Device not found.

From the output of lspci

Can anyone tell me if anyone has been able to get the ethernet card of the 8770C to work with linux?

Thanks.
