You need to supply more information such as operating system,
machine type, network card type, other adapters, bus, etc.

Well, this is UNIX area, so lets see it from this point of view:

If you are working with Solaris and SPARC machines then is pretty straightforward: just install the card in any slot available and boot your machine with the command boot -r in the ok> prompt.

In Linux you need to make sure there is support in the kernel for your card, if there is not you need to recompilr the kernel and maybe to issue a boot command saying the parameters of the card (IRQ and base memory usually).

For othe UNIXes I don't know, but should be a very similar approach in general.
