Configure/enable 1000 BASE-T GBIC (WS-G5483) on WS-C3524-PWR-XL-EN

Current layout:
Switch 2  Cisco Cat 3524 (GE0/2 connected to GE0/2 on Switch 1)
Switch 1  Cisco Cat 3524 (GE0/1 connected to LAN via 1000 BASE-T GBIC, GE0/2 connected to GE0/2 on Switch 2)

We need to change the current configuration so that GE0/1 on Switch 2 is directly connected to the LAN.  We are using a 1000 BASE-T (WS-G5483) connected to same LAN switch as GE0/1 on Switch 1.

When GBIC is plugged in to GE0/1 on Switch 2, the LED for this interface stays dark.  We have tried to use the GBIC on GE0/1 of Switch 1 with the same results.  I believe this is a configuration problem where I need to tell Switch 2 that is needs to use the GBIC on GE0/1.  I am unfortunately having trouble finding anything online to help me with this.  Below is the show int of GE0/1 Switch 2 along with its show run.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark

there is no configuration required to plug in a GBIC. I suspect your switch is faulty if the GBIC works in the other slots of the switches. i would try reloading the switch with the GBIC inserted however as you have a pretty old switch and it may not be being detected until bootup.

Thanks for this cstosgale, this is what I suspected, though b/c of the way in which the two switches are currently connected I was not sure.
