Installing a fiber nic card

I have installed a SMC 6724SX into a Proliant 1600. Novell found the card which I did not expect and I had configured the card accordingly taking the Net configs from the other net card and deleting them respectfully. At the same time not thinking I also installed Service pack 6a for Novell. After I had installed both of these items None of the TCP/IP Clients did not work although the IPX is working fine I had to go to each computer and put IPX on for a temp fix. I installed the card into slot 2 and Novell asked what slot from 1-32555 i put in 1. I had 3 novell specalists and not one figured it out. Is there something I am missing. I did both of the directions to the T. Any suggestions I could try to get the IP client up and running is it a config problem with compaq and the net card? At this point I am going to take the fiber card out and put it back on good old coper lines. This server supports 300 connections plus a host server for 15 server backups. Any suggestions can help.
