Actually, ifconfig is used to configure the interface (in conjunction with the
'route' command). To configure the hardware end of the story (the IRQ, i/o
port base, etc. ) is another story altogether. For complete details on
ethernet hardware configuration, see the Ethernet-HOWTO, and for the scoop on
configuring the network interfaces, see the NET-3-HOWTO or the NET3-4-HOWTO.
Briefly, to configure the eth1 interface, you'd use something similar to:

prompt# ifconfig eth1 netmask up

Hope this is what you were looking for!
