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.

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 Ubuntu server on a system with 2 network cards, while I was going through the installation process, the installer asked me which one of the two network cards was going to be my primary NIC, I selected the integrated one. The system booted up and when I type #ifconfig, it only shows eth0 and lo. I have to NICs because I want to set up the DHCP. Can you guys help me enabling eth1? thanks.
The following location /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ check whether there are files like ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1 and check whether the ip address assigned by DHCP or static ip. check dmesg log,further is there any error or failure related to eth1 card
Ubuntu will not have those directories there. Those are for RH based distributions.
In system > preferences > network connections are not you able to change the settings?
And what if you provide with static ip address?
