Question Network card gone missing?

I just installed Xubuntu 7.10.

I have two network cards installed and both worked when booting off of the live cd. Once I installed the OS I only see 1 network card now (eth0). If I put the Live CD back in and boot off of it, both network cards show and are working again.

If I do a
sudo ifconfig eth1
I get this back:
eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found
But if I open /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules I see there should be two network cards (eth0 and eth1).

Here is the output of a lspci.
root@MS:/# lspci | grep Ethernet
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: ADMtek NC100 Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11)

Neither network card is wireless. This is a desktop computer.

I forgot to mention the most important part. I recompiled the kernel and didn't copy over my existing config. Is there an easy way to compare the old config with the new one?
