NM was disabled and Network enabled.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth3 was edited.
When a static IP was set, the eth3 card stopped working.
This is a mystery to me, but I don't want to waste more time on this.
So, I had no choice but to set it to DHCP.
As a work-around, I set the MAC address of the eth3 to a reserved dhcp address.
Thank you all for your prompt and timely help.

I've found the source of the problem.
I was not careful enough to type the correct subnet mask.
