Almost any network interface card (NIC) supported by the Linux kernel should also be supported by the installation system; modular drivers should normally be loaded automatically.
The list of supported network devices is:
Channel to Channel (CTC) and ESCON connection (real or emulated)
OSA-2 Token Ring/Ethernet and OSA-Express Fast Ethernet (non-QDIO)
OSA-Express in QDIO mode, HiperSockets and Guest-LANs
