Hi,

Thanks for trying to help. The 2 NICS are a Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet
(NC100 v2) and a Linksys Fast Ethernet (LNE100TX v4). Both came with Linux
driver disks included. The driver was tulip.c which had a make file on disk
that I used then copied the drivers to the hard disk. I manually added lines
to etc/rc.modules but I played around with some configuration utlities as
well. So I am not real sure which method got the cards installed to the point
they are at now.

The lines/message in /var/log/messages is:
Feb 12 19:26:15 SUETKAMP kernel: tulip.c:v0.92 4/17/2000 Written by Donald
Becker <becker@scyld.com>
Feb 12 19:26:15 SUETKAMP kernel: http://www.scyld.com/network/tulip.html
Feb 12 19:26:15 SUETKAMP kernel: eth0: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at 0xca85a000,
xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, IRQ 11.
Feb 12 19:26:15 SUETKAMP kernel: eth1: ADMtek Comet rev 17 at 0xca85c000,
xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, IRQ 10.

For /var/log/boot.log I got:
Feb 12 19:24:12 SUETKAMP network: Setting network parameters: succeeded
Feb 12 19:24:13 SUETKAMP network: Bringing up interface lo: succeeded
Feb 12 19:24:13 SUETKAMP ifup: Determining IP information for eth0...
Feb 12 19:24:13 SUETKAMP ifup: done.
Feb 12 19:24:14 SUETKAMP network: Bringing up interface eth0: succeeded
Feb 12 19:24:14 SUETKAMP ifup: Determining IP information for eth1...
Feb 12 19:25:14 SUETKAMP ifup: Operation failed.
Feb 12 19:26:14 SUETKAMP ifup: failed.
Feb 12 19:26:14 SUETKAMP network: Bringing up interface eth1: failed

but as I said before after bootup is complete when I do a ifconfig eth1 I get
that the card has its driver loaded.
