Multiple NIC cards - public and private IPs

I am trying to configure a second NIC card. I have configured the eth0 device for the public IP, and now want to configure the second device (eth1) for a private IP. The second device should use the private gatway. What are the configurations required?

Many thanks.

I might be a little confused as to what your asking, but if you just want to configure the second NIC to talk to a home LAN for instance, all you have to do is from the prompt as root:

/sbin/ifconfig up (where the xxx is the IP, probably if I'm guessing right)

If you want this configure on startup, there's a million ways to do this, but its probably best to configure it the way your distro wants you to. Which distro are you using?

you could write a file "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1",then use command " ifconfig eth0 up". Of course, you can run command "netconf" to finish this task.
