SuSe 9.3 2 network cards networking with Windows XP

Hi everyone,
Well I have a Windows XP (2 network cards - one for the i-net - shared, the other one for the network - connected to a switch, i have several connected computers on the switch, the other are working just fine just the SuSe is giving up) machine and one with SuSe 9.3 ! The network was just fine, Samba-s working perfectly, I have a share the internet connection from the XP.. (both network cards are with static IP's), untile one day, when I diceded to put a seconde net. card! When I did that, first the i-net connection desapeared from the SuSe, but i still have a connection between the two of them, I configured the new network, card, gave her a different static IP (the first one IP: and the new one IP: on the XP - this is the internal network), but i still have just network connection, so I rebooted the machine, and when I entered again, I did'nt have a network connection (but i have a ping between the two computers, i pinged the two cards - the new one and the old, I had a ping), but I have an internet connection. I restarted the Samba Server, nothing happend, chaned the ruls again, again nothing.. when i search for the linux machine in XP on the both address-s it does'nt gave me anything! The interesting is that, when i creat a share folder on the XP and on the SuSe in Conquerer i typed: smb:// it accessed it!!
The other incredible thing was, whe i disconected the new Network Card, the ping between the computeres stoped !! on the both address!! I try it with both and both gave the sam result, the network compleatly desapeard, as there is no cable connected, despite there is one connected!! So any one can help me deal with this problem ?
I want to make the connection between the two computers, so i can use some files from the SuSe by the XP, and have the Internet Connection working on the SuSe.
Thanks a lot instead !!
Have a nice day.
