slackware and network cards


Hello all. I just installed Slackware 9.1 and during the setup it only detected one of my network cards. I have two installed. I want to set up internet connection sharing and I can't until I get the other card configured. It called the card eth1.
here are some paramaters

edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

you will want to add a line:
ifconfig ethX ipaddress netmask mask
example:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.9 netmask 255.255.255.0
or for dhcp do:
dhcpcd -t 10 -d ethX

take a look at your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 file, the commentary in the file should guide you for what to put where for the second card.

in slack 9.1 they changed the boot up scripts ... you dont edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 anymore.

now you need to look at /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

but your problem is that the second card isnt loading just add the module to /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice and put its settings(ip dns ...) in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
