ifconfig will display if your nic is up and running..

what type of nic do you have ? and does it state it brings it up during bootup ??

ifconfig is in the /sbin directory so do "/sbin/ifconf -a".

Nope; if it were being recognized you would have an additional entry for "eth0" and it would have an item "MAC:" showing your card's machine address. Use "man ifconfig" to get the details on running "ifconfig" to install the card, then run the command. Red Hat users can give you a bit more detail in this area than I can, since most every distribution is a bit different from the rest in the boot-time operations.
