Unhappy oops! unmounting and mounting nic questions

I finaly got around to making a Red hat box. I got it working, and bent over to install my rj45 for the second time, the computer was connected to the web earlyer, so i know it worked at ome period in time, when my computer was on, anyways, the card was not screwed in and poped out while on. I found a new nic card to replace the one I fried, but how do i unmount the old one? I am running Red hat 6.0, and the old card was a pci, the new is an isa, if that matters...

devices other than second storage(harddisk/floppy/cdrom/zip/etc)
don't get mounted

they are supported by
kernel module(or included in kernel itself)

if you didn't compile kernel yourself,
whether u can use your nic depends on what options you included in installation time.

if you did include options for your nic, supposedly you can shutdown,
plug in the card , reboot
and your redhat will detect new hardware

if you have run 'auto hardware detection' under windows,
similar auto detection program is available ..
you can use it without rebooting i suppose..
it 's probably under configuration when you click the 'K' button (in kde)
or something like 'start' button under windows.

good luck
