adding a second NIC

What is the best way to add a second nic in my Slack box? I've looked at /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 but it only seemed to accomodate one nic entry.

I think from version 9 or 10 there is a config file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

i case you don't have this file I suggest you just modify the

you copy the part with variables (put them just below the original so
all config stuff is on the top part of that file)

but not the GATEWAY (no reason for this)

rename the copied variables to IPADDR2 (just add a 2 to all of them)

and the part that starts with
if [ "$USE_DHCP" = "yes" ];
and ends with the

modify in this copy also the variable names (adding a 2 and rename eth0 to eth1)

also you will need to compile the driver in your kernel or load the module for the
second card on the same moment as the other card (eg /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice)
