Need Help with adding 3rd NIC to Fedora

I am trying to add a third network card (an Intel gigabit card) to my Fedora server to setup a static route to another network.

I have add the eth2 alias in /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modules.conf as:
Alias eth2 e1000

I created the ifcfg-eth2 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts the contents are as shown (removed personal info):
HWADDR=[MAC Address]
BROADCAST=[Broadcast Address]
IPADDR=[Static Address]
NETWORK=[Network Address]

When I restart the server or the network service eth2 fails to start and shows the error below:
# Bringing up interface eth2: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device

So I did a ifconfig –a and see that there is a eth2_rename shown in the list.

How do I get eth2 to load correctly so I can set the static route I need?
