You might want to consider installing a newer version of Ubuntu, such as 10.04 LTS (the Lucid Lynx) or 10.10 (the Maverick Meerkat), as Ubuntu 9.04 will reach end-of-life in two weeks and will cease to be supported.

In addition, hardware support generally improves with newer versions of Ubuntu.

The nonfunctional network card appears to be "Intel Corporation Device 10f0 (rev 05)".

Checking /usr/share/misc/pci.ids in my freshly-upgraded Ubuntu 10.10 I see that it is now recognized as "82578DC Gigabit Network Connection", which means there's a good chance it should just work with a newer Ubuntu version.

Intel's PCI vendor ID is 8086, the device ID is shown here -- 10f0. Kernel drivers usually have a list of PCI device IDs that they support; checking it with

grep v00008086d000010F0 /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/*

I see that the e1000e driver in Ubuntu 10.10 claims support for your network card.

In short: upgrade.
