Multiple nics with loadlin

Multiple nics with loadlin

Post by Ken Willia » Mon, 27 Mar 2000 04:00:00

I have one etherexpress at irq 10 port df00 and one tulip card at irq 9 port
dc00.  Eveytime the kernel boots up, the etherexpress is eth0 and the tulip is
eth1.  I explicitly put


in my par file loadlin, but the tulip(irq 9) is still eth1, not eth0.

Anyone know how to get the tulip as eth0 with loadlin?

Full linux.par:



1. multiple NICs, multiple IP addresses?

(This is related to my problem titled "need help w/ 2 NICs and - ping,
portmap, NFS, ...")

If a machine has more than one NIC, must they be on different subnets?
192.168.10.x  and  192.168.11.x  and so forth?  Or can they be on the
subnet (  and

Is it possible for them to share a single IP address????

TIA, -bob,mon.
