Could someone tell me how to get linux to recognize a second ethernet card?
There is several eth? device files in /dev and someone told me that Space.c
had something to do with it.  Thanks.

I have the same problem :) I already have a very well connection to the
internet on my eth0 device. I want to install a second ethernet card and
route my Novell Netware through the Linux box. I don't know why Linux
does not recognize my second card.

Thanks

Edit your /etc/lilo.conf file and add this line:
append = "ether=0,0,eth1"

Rerun lilo.  
That's how i got mine to work.  There are other ways too.

I'm very new to Linux, so may be this won't help, but:
I simply put this line into /etc/lilo.conf:

append = "ether=10,0x300,0,0,eth0 ether=3,0x200,0,0,eth1"

and then run "lilo".
For explanation:  ether=<IRQ>,<I/O Addr>,<ignored>,<Iflag>,<device>
where <Lflag> is 0 for internal transceiver and 1 for external.

You probably need a later version of the kernel.  ISTR about 1.1.45 was
bandied about a little while back.

No. the tow fields after the io-base are for shared-memory-cards. It is
the Mem-Start-Adr and the Mem-End-Adr. For the WD8003 for example it
will look as

  ether=5,0x300,0xd0000,0xd2000,eth0

The fields are :

  IRQ,IO,MEMSTART,MEMEND,ETHNAME

1. Linux won't recognize two ethernet cards simultaneously

I've got two ethernet cards, one an SMC Ultra, and the otehr a 3Com card.  On
bootup, linux sees them both and assigns them the correct IRQ, memory address, etc.
 Then, I use ifconfig, and it shows me that one interface, eth0, is working
with the proper network parameters.  I then configure eth1, the other network card
interface with this command .

ifconfig eth1 128.194.11.253 broadcast 128.194.11.255 netmask 255.255.255.0

Ifconfig shows that the card is configured, but I can't connect to that net.  

Am I missing something here?  The whole object of this is to use a linux box as a
gateway between two subnets, 128.194.11.0 and 128.194.160.0 .

Any help would be appreciated.
