Ethernet card + notebook


hello,
im running RH9 on my dell laptop with a ethernet adapter plugged into the expansion slot.

the card seemed to work fine for the first couple of weeks i had it...i could get online, and redhat recognized it right away. Now, however, when i boot up linux, it fails to recognize the card....and says 'it doesn't appear to be present'.

i have tried going into the network configuration menu, and have tried to activate the card from there, but again it always fails to do so. Is there any way i can be sure this is a problem with my hardware, and if so, whether the problem lies in my expansion slot, or in the card itself?

thanks
