Cannot detect 2nd network card in FC5

I would like to create a proxy server using FC5. My board has an on-board network card and i installed a PCI NIC card. However, when i boot up both in text and X-Win modes, the 2nd network card cannot be detected.

The 2nd nic card is working when installed in other computers. Also when i plugged in the lan cable, the activity light is on. I also restarted the kudzu service but nothing happened. When i perform an 'ifconfig' only eth0 and lo appears although the 2nd nic card is already installed. In FC3 and FC4, they have detected my 2nd nic card during bootup.

Did i miss something here?

It should be detected on bootup as well in FC5.
Try running as root: kudzu

I have tried stopping and starting kudzu but to no avail...i also tried the link give n by ibu1 but its too complicated for me.

What i did is i installed the 2nd nic card, formatted by hard drive and installed FC5 again, this time during the first phase of the installation, FC5 detected immediately my 2nd nic card.

Thanks for all of your assistance..
