Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just installed a new hard drive in my computer. Because of the awkward design of my case, this required the removal of my ethernet card. When I was finished installing the hard drive, I put the ethernet card back where I took it out of.
When I booted up next, kudzu came up telling me that my ethernet card was missing. I then shut down and made sure the card was seated properly. It seemed to be fine. The lights on the back of the card and the one on my router were lit, indicating a connection was present. kudzu came up again, so I removed the configuration. Now I can't get the card to be detected again.
Any ideas on how to get the card to be detected again? Thanks.
What is the make/model of the network card.
Does the output of lspci show your network card?
Does the output of dmesg indicate your network card is being detected?
Does the output of lsmod show the network card module being loaded?
I configure my PCs with a static IP address so when one of my network cards went south there wasn't any indication from the software side. I believe that the transmitter fried which also took out the port on my hub. (or maybe it was the other way around)
BTW you should use a ground strap when installing/removing components from a PC or least touch the case to be at the same potential as the PC. Static electricitry can weaken and or destory circuit cards.
Isn't dhcpd a server not a client. pump or dhclient are the apps that acquire an IP addess.
