G4 cube and debian 12. No nic found


This is a 450MHz G4 cube model M7886. I’m trying to install debian 12 (netinstall cd) onto this, but the nic is not recognised, and thus installation fails when source would be mounted. Which nic is in this Mac? Any hints and ideas are welcome.

Actually my only target is to have modern os to do some relatively safe surfing, SSH here and there etc.

About debian, I have not found a link to full dvd iso, only a netinstall. If there is a full dvd somewhere that would be nice.
