Lost network card

I have a fairly brand new install of FC3 with all the latest
patches. I replaced the on-board video with a Radeon 9200, today.
When I came back up, the machine couldn't find the network card.
It comes up inactive and it says it does not appear to be present
if I try to activate it with the Network Configuration utility. If
I remove it from the configuration in the same utility, Kudzu
doesn't redetect it. If I select New\Ethernet Connnection, the
list appears and seems to include the NIC, but if I re-add it and
reconfigure it, I get back to the same error. I had changed a
couple of video related BIOS settings when I put the RADEON in,
and I just changed those back, but still the same. I'm sure this
is something in my FC3 configuration because if I boot into
Windows, the card comes up just fine.
