i have just installed another NIC onto my linux machine (woody version). I assign an ip to it via editing /etc/network/interfaces and install driver via modconf command. When i restart the computer i can't see the new eth1 loaded. I try to use ifconfig eth1 up 192.168.50.126 netmask 255.255.255.0 command, and i got resource temperarily unavaliable. But the funny thing is , i can ping the 126 address from other computer in lan , there is no data loss.
Can anyone help me with this problem? Btw , our LAN use static IP and the driver for eth0 is epro100 and eth1 is sis900.
