Cool editing eth-1 -asteriskNow

Hi People,

I have a AsteriskNow Linux box and i wanted to add another network card, i have done this and it has loaded the drivers... I have found out that second cards need to be enabled... if i type ifcfg eth1 it shows me the card.... and I need to edit that device with BOOTON selected to ON to enable it.

I have two questions

A) what is the comand to edit the ifcfg eth-1 card, Apparently i use a text editor but how ? i know what to do once in but can't get in...
B) is there a list of very common linux commands i cuold use to start me off on my linux journey ? -

Thanks from a Newb....
