Installing 2nd NIC.  Any special steps? Or mostly plug and play?

I will be moving from single NIC config and installing a second NIC.  Current configuration is a Single NIC, DSL modem and VPN/Gateway Router that all components connect to.  With the two NIC config I will incorporate a Switch for the interior/LAN and will get rid of the external Router and use the SBS’s router for the WAN.  (I am told that this is the preferred config.)

Is there anything that I need to do special prior to powering down the system and installing the second NIC?  Or is it for the most part plug-and-play?

depends on the card - if it's new, then it will likely be plugnplay. Worst case is you'll need to download drivers and change irq's and such. chances are you'll be fine.
