anaconda doesn't do much of anything with module loading anymore.  I wonder if this is a case of a new piece of hardware not being identified by any of the available drivers.

This does not work with original F13 install media. If you can install it using some other network card and update the kernel, the card should work after that. It should work during install in F14.
