Not to worry.

So, what -- you carry it around from your home to your girlfriend's
home?  What do you mean multi-homed?  I'm thinking you have a SCSI
cable going between two machines or something really snazzy like that.

Why?  Seriously.  If you're masquerading or something, the ipmasq
package will "do the right thing."  But if you must, I would first look
at boot time arguments, like eth0=blah,blah eth1=yadda,yadda and like
that.  Should be pretty easy since the 10BT is a lance, and the others
are hme's.
