I have never had more than a single interface.

Any help on setting this new card up?

That would do it.

If you wanted to bring it online without another reboot like you had to after adding the entries you mentioned that is possible too. You could use ifconfig to plumb and bring up the interface, and route to add a default route for the networks it is on.

Of course, even if you did that you'd want to add the entries or when you did reboot it wouldn't come up.
