either modem or PCI card

I have no idea which one I should focus on at this point let me just start at the beginning.
The intel RJ-45 connector on my motherboard doesn't work the HP n1207d in the PCI does, Linux see both of them and I don't know which one it is trying to you, I am only speculating by the print out it gives me with certain command.
I know it see both controllers since i used the lspci command after figuring out why i can never get online. The intel one is like the second in the list of devices and the hp is the last device listed (which it should be since it is in my last PCI slot) How do i tell linux no no no to the intel controller and yes to the HP one. Linux sees the HP as 02:06.0 and reported it as Accton Technology Corperation smc2-1211tx if that would help out any.

Notice something else very stange with my network one i can't use pcilib anymore have no idea why that is and the ifconfig report as such:
Link encap: Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask
inet addr: :: 1/28 Scope: host
Up loopback running mtv:16436 Metric:1

And the reason i think it is useing the intel and not the hp is it reports back saying error fetching interface information: device not found using netstat. Which it shouldn't be found since it is broken.

So is there anyway i can make sure it is using the hp. thanks alot.

This ia an easy problem can i have the new directory where the inputdevice section is so i can add mouse button 4 and 5 for scrolling. I looked in /etc/X11 and it was not in there. Thank you

if you don't want to use the onboard device, why not disable it in the bios?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf well, it should be there...

As tobyl said if you don't use your onboard ethernet, disable it in the BIOS. Check your motherboard manual for which key to press to enter the BIOS screen on startup.

xorg.conf does not configure your network adaptors. To enable your scrollwheel, in the second 'InputDevice' section change the protocol to this
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
and add these lines at the end of the section
   Option "SendCoreEvents"  "true"
   Option "Buttons"         "5"
   Option "ZAxisMapping"    "4 5"
