Sbs server cannot see network

Hi I built an SBS 2003 server recently which is going to be the pdc on what is at the moment a workgroup.
Initially I wanted just to add the server to this workgroup to use the workgroup's internet connection so that I could work on it remotely and copy data to it e.t.c.
On adding it to the workgroup there was an I.P.clash with another p.c. which is the file "server" on the workgroup and since then my  sbs server cannot communicate at all on the network.I have checked i.p. settings e.t.c. and I get a warning if network port is disconnected so network card (onboard) is being recognised and I can ping local host .Dns is running and I deleted and recreated my dhcp scope and restarted various services but it still refuses to communicate with anything.It is almost as if the network card is faulty.What are the implications of adding another card on dns ,dhcp e.t.c.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Did you enter ip address in for card, can ping that address ?

you can add a more net cards should all work fine, but  if do have bad card you turn if off if can.

Hi thanks for the response.I assigned an I.P. address of 192.168.0.1 to my network card and it responds o.k. to a ping.
I have added a second card into the server now but I am trying to figure out how to make this the Server local area connection.
I will let you know what happens.
