The Promise card is supported by the standard linux kernel, so you don't have to download any special drivers. You might, however, need to upgrade the kernel in your debian installation. If I recall correctly, the debian woody installer contains a very old linux version.
Try: apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686
However if you plan to do anything more than just serving files on the machine, you may want to install Sarge (a.k.a "testing") instead. Woody is the old and stable release, which only gets critical bugfixes and security patches. Sarge is updated daily and contains much more recent versions of virtually everything.
