Check your log file, /var/log/dmesg and look for the lines (toward the end usually) relating to ethX. If there is nothing there then it means that the network card is not being initiated. You can also use a consol and enter the command; ifconfig which will list the network devices.

If you want to obtain a dhcp lease then you should setup one of the cards to pickup a lease from the router. I don't use Mandriva so cannot help there. If you are using 2 cards then you must have a routing requirement and the cards must be on different subnets.
If you are using a static address the card should be on the same subnet as the LAN but the address must not duplicate an address that has already been issued by the router.
