interface eth0 failure on WS install

I have a working Debian machine in which I replaced the HD with a new HD
and loaded a copy of RH Enterprise WS 3 academic (that I just purchased from
RH for $25).
Everything went well during the install (I used downloaded ISO's that I
checksummed) until it got the "bringing up interface eth0". I had forgotten
to plug in the ethernet cable from my cablemodem/router (DHCP) so it failed.
I thought: no problem, shutdown, pulled the NIC , rebooted, used Kudzu to
remove the NIC, shutdown again, reinstalled the NIC, Kudzu found the NIC but
still encountered the long pause and failure at "bringing up interface
I've, tried the remove NIC/ reinstall NIC process several times since and
tested the NIC on another machine to re-confirm that it works and it does.
So it seems it's a RH problem.
Not sure if my initial failure to plug the CAT5 cable in, affected things
but I can't see why it would in the long run.
If anyone knows what the problem is or how I can fix it, I would very much
appreciate the help. I'm stumped.
No RH phone support with my license and I am a RH newbie...
