two network cards, two(?) networks, one computer...

Greets.

At work we have several servers with two network
cards per configured on the same network.
Ie. one card would be 192.168.1.4 and the second one 192.168.1.5.
One card is plugged into the backbone.
However, the other card is plugged into a 'server-only' hub,
I guess for inter-server communication.

My question: is this sane?

i think not for routing purposes the servers may not know where to send
stuff....on the other hand it may work fine...... i would suggest changing
to 192.168.2.x for the server hub it may save u mystryous happenings later
