replaced NIC, now no network

I disabled the onboard eth0 NIC and installed a PCI NIC. On reboot,
Etch, Xandros and Knoppix all figured out how to use the new device
instead of the old one. In Kubuntu I now have no network.
/etc/network/interfaces remains untouched since before the swap, making
no direct reference to the hardware device. doesn't
address much of anything. In system settings -> network settings there
is a disabled eth1 and no eth0, and no apparent way to remove the bogus
device or add and configure the new eth0. How do I solve this in 6.06?
