I'm assuming you've made a minor typing mistake in the first sentence of the previous paragraph (otherwise very confusing) I'm assuming also that you're saying that the internal card boots OK and the card hooked to the cable modem is failing: 
  - be sure the driver module for the cable modem eth card is loaded (e.g 'insmod 3c90x' or whatever for your card )
  - be sure the 'pump' package in installed

If any of the above doesn't help, please give more info re: type of cards, excerpts of log files showing error messages, etc. config files, (e.g./etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1)
