Welcome to LQ!!

Why 11? Slackware is now at 12.2

I don't know that much about multiple ethernet cards, but start by running dmesg and ifconfig -a to see what the system is recognizing and starting up automatically. Here is the output of "dmesg|grep eth" on my machine:
Code:
eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM5752KFBG) rev 6002 PHY(5752)] (PCI Express) 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet 00:19:b9:21:2a:f6
eth0: RXcsums[1] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[0] WireSpeed[1] TSOcap[1]
eth0: dma_rwctrl[76180000] dma_mask[64-bit]
tg3: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
tg3: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
among other things, this says that a card was found, assigned to eth0, and matched up with the "tg3" driver. "ifconfig" confirms that eth0 is up and running and has an IP assigned.

If it looks like your cards are being recognized, then you can bring them up manually using "ifconfig eth0 up" (or eth1).
Or---down, using "ifconfig eth0 down".

Finally, in your configuration files, you will be able to setup how each interface starts up, IP, etc.

Did you plug the internet cable into the new nic? It is possible the new nic is actually the first. All depends on PCI IRQ addressing.

go to whereever you setup your internet configuration and add information for the other card.
(On my system (slackware 12.2): /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf)

yea, this is known problem (as for me in slack 11. Do you have the same network cards? Show us your output from "ip a show" command.
Just put your cable to second card. In my opinion this eth numeration just replace...

As above post the info of /sbin/ifconfig -a and just want to make sure check the mac address of the teo interfaces and verify you have the internet cable connected to the correct card by looking at its mac address written on it.
