Adding another NIC possibly changes the default designation of eth0 & eth1, eth2... Some distros handle this seamlessly, but in others you need to adjust your NIC naming to suit the distro. Was really hoping someone familiar with the DSL way could step up here.

Hehe, it was that, thanx.

I fiddled with it and managed to get it working. NICs have proper addresses, time zone is correct and when I issue time sync command, it syncs with NTP properly.

Now, the final two questions:

- how do I set up the machine to sync every X minutes with NTP?
- how do I add time sync to boot

For help on configuring the NTP daemon, see the respective man page:
man ntpd
DSL almost certainly has a standard scheme for launching system services, most likely stemming from entries made in the /etc/init.d directory tree. I suggest that you follow whatever model is already used, and if necessary, craft a new script to launch the ntp daemon.
