2nd NIC

I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy server and wanted to add a 2nd NIC so that I'd
have eth0 plugged into my outgoing fiber connection and eth1 on a router
for an internal lan in the house.
I plugged in the 2nd nic card,  but it won't light.
dmesg|grep eth1 shows
e1000: eth1: e1000 probeL Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection

tail /var/log/syslog shows
dhclient: Bind socket to interface: No such device

ifup eth1 returns
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

/etc/network/interfaces has
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

Am I missing something else?
