There's this amazing gadget called "Google" that comes in very handy, at
times like these. The very first link that comes up when you Google for
"intel 82557 ethernet pro linux" indicates that this chip is supported by
the e100 module, which should've been autodetected automatically.

That strongly suggests that you have some other problem with this hardware.
Go ahead and start an install. At the point where you're asked to select
which packages to install, use CTRL-ALT-F2 (or F3, I don't remember) and you
should have a shell on the alternate VT. Try running "lspci -v" to see what
PCI cards are visible to the kernel. I do not recall if lspci command is
built into the anaconda install image, but it should only take a few minutes
to try this.
