1) Make sure that you have compiled support for that particular card in the kernel or if you are using MODULES, be sure you have a module compiled for it and that it is loaded by your kernel.

2) It 1) above is true, then your kernel will detect and report the NIC driver while booting.  If you miss it, run the dmesg command at the shell and see if it's there.

3) Set it's IP address:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1

or whatever your IP address needs to be.  In most distributions, however, there is an rc file (like /etc/rc.network) where it will configure your NIC on boot if you edit the file.
