Dual NIC, One Cable one for NT Network...

Seems that dual nic problems are popular...

Anyway, here's the setup:

I have one nic (NDC 10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI MX987x5) that is to connect to

is no info on the National Datacom site.

The other card is a 3Com 3c905-tx 10/100 which needs to talk to a file
server of a different IP range.

The NDC card has to be set up to obtain an IP from the remote network and
use it's defualt gateway, DNS etc. based on my computer's name of
cr814315-a. IP mask is 24.114.165.x /

The other is not important but should talk to the other computer using a IP
mask of 192.168.10.x / and it's name is not important.

If, to make it more of a simple task, I was to disable the 3Com card would
this be more feasable?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated, the OS is RedHat 6.1.

1. One system, one NIC, two network addresses?

I've got a Netra running the latest Solaris.  The system has one NIC
card and is set-up as a gateway on one segment of our network.

Is it possible to add an alternate IP address (from another network)
to the same NIC card so the system can be accessed by a different
network?  IE:

Current address:
New Alternate address:

I'm not interested in routing packets past this machine to the rest of
the 55.22.10.* network, just in making the data on the
machine visisble to the 55.22.10.* network.
