Ok  stupid question.  I have a 1841 Router with one T1 controller card.  Added another one in the router & rebooted.
How do I get the Router to see the new card?

interface FastEthernet0/0
 description xxxxxxx
 ip address
 no ip mroute-cache
 duplex auto
 speed auto
interface FastEthernet0/1
 no ip address
 no ip mroute-cache
 duplex auto
 speed auto
interface Serial0/0/0
 description CID xxxx
 ip address
 encapsulation ppp
 no fair-queue

I have another 1841 with two controller cards & I want to set this one up the same way.  Two T1 controllers & Multilink them.

controller T1 0/0/0
 framing esf
 linecode b8zs
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24
 description MLPPP-1 to Main
controller T1 0/0/1
 framing esf
 linecode b8zs
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24

interface Multilink1
 description MLPP to Main xxxxxxx
 ip address
 no cdp enable
 ppp multilink
