Edit /etc/network/interfaces so it includes something similar to:
iface eth1 inet static
If your ethernet is loaded as a module then edit /etc/modutils/aliases
so it has a line similar to:
alias eth0 tulip options=4
Change as needed.
If your ethernet is NOT a module, then you will have to pass arguments
to the kernel at boot time. The commands depend on which firmware you
have (SRM or ARCS/ARC/AlphaBIOS+MILO).
That should do it..
