Problems when with 2 network cards

Hey. I'm using Slackware 9.1 & Yesterday Both a second Network Interface Card. When i was with one card there was no problems, but now with 2 network cards there's no internet .
OK no problems with windows XP or 2k but no internet on the Slackware.
When running netconfig & set the net settings for static ip (that's how i connect 2 the internet) it seems to be fine. I dunno how 2 work with ifconfig but when i type it I see the netconfig settings i done are made on the eth0 interface. The cable i sonnected to the eth0 not eth1 & not working. No idea what's the problem.
I'm using linux for 1 mounth, anny sugestions?

Are you sure that eth0 is still eth0? It may be that after inserting a new NIC, the old one became eth1 and the new one is eth0.

That, and the fact that if you have two network cards they should be on different subnets. If you just duplicated all the settings from your original Ethernet card, then you most likely used the same subnet, which is wrong.

Having two cards plugged into the same switch/hub is pretty much pointless, unless you're doing interface bonding but that only applies to situations where you need an insane amount of bandwidth.

Thanks, it works now! I never thought that the new one became eth0 cuz even in knoppix it's eth1
