Nope, nothing wrong unless you a have done something really non
standard. PCMCIA cards are bought up by the PCMCIA subsystems, the
other network cards are bought up by the network scripts (which run
earlier). So, if you are setting up the PCMCIA card via
/etc/network/interfaces do not use the 'auto' keyword for eth1. That
should take care of it unless you did something else to the standard
