Re: Eth*'s and they corresponding hardwares

Thxs a lot ppl thats was exatly what i was looking for, I'm trying it this
week end. If u dont have word from me then I'll have to read things more
carefully but it will sertenlly work out.

Thx to u all.

Posibles solutions, some ramdom order.
	-Switch cables.

	-Use modules, and load them in the proper way, (not suitable for me but....)


    INFO="Orinoco Settings"

	-nameif (man 8 nameif) this sound cool just to have a net call
	 servers, dnz, newbys, really rocks :)

	-hard code your mac addresses in the config file


#man interfaces defines how

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        hwaddr 00:20:18:10:72:76

	-Steve Haavik point me to te following links/man pages

This was discussed here a couple months back.

And a quick search on Google turned this up.

Debian bug #101728."
with some words detailing what would i have to go trough

	- Last but defenitly not least Robert Tasarz give some, for what i
see, personal exps. in the topic.

	I'll read this with care and try to go for it if I get to the
cleaver solution, ill post it.

Cya and thx to u all,
