yeah, I checked it:
Even if I shutdown eth1, this machine is not reachable :-(

well, sorry, was a typo. inside /etc/modules.conf is:
alias eth1 rtl8139
any other idea?
maybe it has something to do with another problem?
If I do not use a direct x-cable to connect to
this machine, the realtek card also does not respond
and gets unreachable.
Only when I use a x-cable the adaptor will work.
And again, If the card will not work, I receive
But in syslog I see, that the card is only in
half-duplex mode. This happens only, if I do not
use a x-cable und plug the machine into a hub.
thanx in advance
