Thumbs up

Well, are the interfaces correctly configured using different IP addresses? Since it is configurated, it should works.

jeffbk,
There is some basic configuration you need to do.
We cannot help you do this because you have not told us your distro, and different ones do it differently (linux is not windows!).
Most people edit their user profile so their distro is visible beneath their name (Hint!) Edit: Oops - you did, it's FC5/6. Pls. see the link below.

Anyway, this is the link that started me on networking. Don't panic, it is simpler than you think, just take things step-by step, and view it as a little puzzle that needs to be solved.
