D-link DFE690 pcmcia problems

I recently installed suse 9 on a dell latitude laptop. I am using a D-link DFE690 txd pcmcia ethernet card, and Yast recognized and configures card as eth-pcmcia (the card is running--I get the high beep and the lights are flickering). However, I am still unable to connect to the internet. Yast error messages stated: "DHCP Client is already running on eth0."
Well, I checked var/log/messages, and it shows the kernel is identifying my D-link pcmcia card with eth0---however in etc/sysconfig/network the ifcfg file is set up as ifcfg-eth-pcmcia. There is no ifcfg-eth0 file.

Any ideas would be great!---Chip
