To change your hard ware, the easy way is to just start whatever the setup program is called. In redhat it is setup, in suse it is yast.

The easy way: If you have linuxconf installed, you can do simply type 'netconf'. In the menu 'Basic host information' you have to change the kernel module name for device eth0 from 'ne2000' to the name of the kernel module that supports your new NIC.

The easier way: Edit /etc/conf.modules with the editor of your choice. Change the line that reads 'alias eth0 ne2000' into 'alias eth0 module_for_your_NIC'.

Then reboot, change the card, boot up, and all should be well.
