I'd put it in place in a free PCI slot and then start the O/S. Normally, your O/S should give you a choice which NIC to use (or to use both, if you have something running that require 2 NIC's). It's not like there can't exist 2 NIC's in one system.

There is no problem to add 1 more NIC card on the board. Install it and enjoy second NIC for your use.
