2nd Network Card eth1 not being detected in SUSE linux version 9


I have 2 onboard network cards on my dl360 hp server. I am pretty sure at one time both of them worked. Now the second card is not being detected ?? I cannot see that in the yast screen. dmesg clearly shows that both the cards are there ? see below

server1-p:/etc # dmesg |grep eth
eth0: Tigon3 [partno(349321-001) rev 2100 PHY(5704)] (PCIX:100MHz:64-bit) 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet 00:12:79:3a:54:b1
eth1: Tigon3 [partno(349321-001) rev 2100 PHY(5704)] (PCIX:100MHz:64-bit) 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet 00:12:79:3a:54:b0
tg3: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, half duplex.
tg3: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

Whats going on ? why can i not see this card in yast to configure it ?

The module is loaded, see below,
server1-p:/etc # lsmod |grep tg3
tg3 88068 0

Also here are the other related files,
install eth0 /bin/true
install eth1 /bin/true
# nVidia nforce chipset (network + audio)
#alias eth0 nvnet
#alias sound-slot-1 nvaudio
#alias usb-interface usb-ohci

ifconfig does not show eth1, but ifconfig -a shows it as
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:12:79:3A:54:B0
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Can you please help ? How do i give this the right IP, please help.

All looks normal as far as I can tell. The only "problem" is
that it's not configured. To do that, use Yast2.
