Need a little more information...In Yast2 does it see the NIC? If during the startup it posts "no interface found" I'm not sure I understand what you mean by I use Yast to fix the problem.

You are able to add the NIC after boot up? Are you running the hardware detection in Yast after boot? A little more information is needed to help accurately troubleshoot this issue. Do you have the linux based drivers for the NIC?

Fixed it!
Need to place *ifup-eth0 in /if-up.d directory with content:
#! /bin/bash
/sbin/modprobe 8139too

Have fun!

The first thing I would try is typing

modprobe 8139cp
modprobe 8139too

depending on the chip on your NIC.

It's not impossible that the Plug n Play in SuSE 9.2 could mess up. Let us know the results, as it will help us narrow it down.

modprobe 8139cp
:8139cp: ... (id 10ec:8139 rev 10) is not an 8139C+ compatible chip
