Any help from somebody will be very appreciated.
lspci should tell you the PCI address of the NIC. Mine is:
04:03.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82546GB Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
Once you have that, you can look for in /var/log/messages to see what happened when it tried to configure. Look for the 04:03.0 part (but use your own address).
e1000: 0000:04:03.0: e1000_probe: (PCI-X:100MHz:64-bit) 00:30:48:d7:e3:66
Look for an error, but post back here anything that you don't understand.
