Configure network card

I have a standalone machine Red Hat Box. I have added an ethernet card to it.
But I dont know how to add an interface (eth0).
Can someone let me know how to set up an interface?

kudzu can detect it automaticly.

if u wanna do that manually, u must add a line for your ethnernet card in /etc/modules.conf
like this:
alias eth0 8139too

u must know what your nic card is and its driver name. 8139too is the driver for rtl 8139 chips.
u can see the drivers in

"lspci" command will show your pci devices. so u can see what your NIC is.
