HELP - Mandrake 9 as a DSL Router

Ok I am a super Newbie when it comes to Linux. I just installed Mandrake 9 on a tower I built with the intentions of using it as a server. Here is the Prob:
I am able to connect to my MSN DSL (wish i had other options) using my linux box. However I have problems once I install a second NIC. (Both NICs are DLink 530 tx models.) When I start up the machine after putting nic 2 in I am no longer able to get online. I have gone through the configuration tools and assigned an IP to the second nic but nothing seems to help. If I take out #2 nic I am able to get back online. I have a WinXP pro box that I wanted to share the connection with by using the second nic as a gateway. I know the nics are good because I purchased a third nic (Realtek) and have swapped all three around in the system. I just want to share my DSL with multiple machines and was told Linux was the best way to do it. PLEASE HELP THIS FLAILING NEWBIE!

Are they maybe conflicting with IRQs? Disable unnecessary devices in you bios and try the second adapter in a different port. Since they Each work, but not both at the same time, that's all I can come up with right now...
