[PLUG] Where's the NIC?

The server at my mom's house in NJ died, so I walked a non-technical helper through swapping the hard drives into a new server I had sitting there just in case. And now there is no eth0 or NIC.

`ifconfig` shows "lo" and nothing else (I think, again, non-technical helper reading things to me). Renaming '/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules' and rebooting did not help and that file was not re-created. The OS is Debian Jessie, upgraded a bunch of times from older Debian, as usual. The hardware was an R200 upgraded to R210.

The MAC addresses in '70-persistent-net.rules' on my similar local server don't match, so I'm thinking that file doesn't matter anymore with Jessie's systemd. But I don't know why I'm not getting anything other than lo in ifconfig...
