Pix 520 won't recognize new ethernet nic

I have installed a third nic into my pix-520. Does the pix automatically recognize it? I tried the interface command, the results are below:

interface ethernet2 auto

Could not recognize hardware identifier "ethernet2"

Boot messages are below:

Rebooting....

Re: Pix 520 won't recognize new ethernet nic

I had the same last week problem with a pix-515. Apparantly there are some chips on the NIC that aren't certified by Cisco and are causing problems. After I replaced mine it was recongized on reboot.
