It sounds like the module you need for the netcard isn't loaded at boot time
(in initrd)

Try this:

hwinfo --netcard

This should provide into about the new card and what module is needed.

Then go to /etc/sysconfig/kernel and check what modules are included in the

INITRD_MODULES="piix ata_piix aic7xxx processor thermal fan jbd ext3"

If the needed module isn't in there, add it in between the quotes.

Then run (as root) mk_initrd


I spit this out from memory.... someone else might see a flaw in it but it is
a good bet that is the problem.
