Configure T1 on Cisco 1841 Router


I must configure a T1 line on a Cisco 1841 router that will be shipped to the USA. I live in europe and have a little experience how to configure a T1 line.

I have installed the card (VWIC2-1MFT-T1/E1) and is activated with the command "card t1 0 0". I can see the card in the running config but how can I configure the interface? I can't see the interface if I do a "show ip int brief".

And can someone send my a example of a configuration because I don't now what to use(framing, linecode, timeslots, channel-group, tdm-group). The provider is Earthlink.

Here is an example:

card type t1 0 0   <--you already did this

controller T1 0/0/0   <--should see controller config
 framing esf   <--default for T1
 linecode b8zs   <--default for T1
 channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24   <--this creates the serial interface (1-24 for full T1)

interface Serial0/0/0:0
 ip address x.x.x.x    <--where x.x.x.x is the IP provided by Earthlink
 encapsulation ppp    <--assuming they will do PPP encapsulation

Okay, well, perhaps you should have selected my solution as the answer or split points between myself and taylorpt if his comment helped as well.  I can have the question re-opened if desired.
