boxes won't ping each other.
 
I have an old p160 setup with slackware 3.5 and a celeron 655 with Red Hat 8.0 on them. I have them connected with a crossover cable, and the cards both work (yes, I recompiled the slackware kernel for my card, and RH picked up it's card easily when I installed the NIC). I have my slackbox setup with the IP address 192.168.212.3 and my redhat box setup with the IP 192.168.212.2. However, I can't ping either one from the other. Can anyone suggest things I should check? It's prolly something completely obvious that I overlooked. any help would be appreciated.

Test the cable or try a different one.

hmm... well, the cable is good, brand new in fact....

just so everyone knows, I fixed it. the problem was with the Etherlink III card, it was setup to send data on the AUI port. it took awhile, but I found a program for linux that reset it to 10baseT.
