Network configuration DHCP/manual

how do I reconfigure my netcard on debian?
and how can I find the MAC address of my netcard?

I installed recently dhcp-client and it configured my netcard,but momentarily I am not on a DHCP network...

how do I reconfigure my netcard again?

any tool/file I should look for?

PS.: I have a VIA Rhine

# ifconfig -a

will give you a list of network devices, their MAC addresses, and other useful information.

# dhcpcd -d ethx will bring up the card ethx.
