What errors do you get?

Have you tried: 'dmesg | less' to be sure that it is not detected?

Which modules exactly did you compile in the kernel?

To get the second network-card up (after it is detected correctly) just 
repeat the steps described "Creating network interface configuration files" 
on: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/view/cvs/chapter07/network.html

and replace:
cat > /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0

cat > /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth1
