Can't use eth0 and eth1 at the same time
My thinkpad can use its wireless card as an access point, and I know how to do that, but for some reason,
whenever eth1 (My wireless card) is configured, eth0 (The regular network card) will not work, and I cannot connect to the network.
I would like to know either how to get both of them to work, or how to enable/disable an eth device without uninstalling it (running SuSE 9.2 btw)
any help or insight would be appreciated, currently, I have it working well enough, but I would like to get both my eth devices working at the same time

in order to disable just one of the nerwotk cards run the command:
ifconfig eth<number> down
The other way which will take a little longer would be to go into YaST and disable it from there."I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"
