Rediscover a new NIC
I am using Suse 11 in virtual enviroment using vmware.
For some reasons I need to add a new virtual nic or just a nic to my suse 11.
so is there a way to add this new NIC to my Suse 11 without restarting?
thanks a lot

To configure the network card from the command line interface:
The acpiphp module must be loaded for Linux to detect hot-added devices.
To load the acpiphp module, run this command:
# modprobe acpiphp
Run the kudzu command to ensure that the new hardware is detected and configured.
Run this command to ensure that the network card is enabled:
Note: eth2 is the new network card that has been added.
To configure the network card, edit the ifcfg-eth2 file using a text editor.
To edit the file using vi editor, run this command:
# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
