Routing TCP/IP on a Novell 3.12 network

ok, here's the scoop...

   got a 25 user Novell 3.12 network divided up into 2
segments.  nothing wrong there.  clients are happy and
connecting to the server.  autoexec.ncf as follows:

   load 3c90X port=6200 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 name=board_1
   bind IPX to board_1 net=2387733

   load 3c90X port=6300 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 name=board_2
   bind IPX to board_2 net=6931189

one of the client machines is our web/mail server.  
like the rest of our clients, it is running Win95 and uses
Microsoft's tcpip stack.  now here's the problem:  i'm
having trouble loading a second frame type(ETHERNET_II)
to the server's nics.  here's what the modified
autoexec.ncf looks like:

   load 3c90X port=6200 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.3 name=board_1
   bind IPX to board_1 net=2387733

   load 3c90X port=6200 FRAME=ETHERNET_ii name=ip1

   load 3c90X port=6300 frame=ethernet_802.3 name=board_2
   bind ipx to board_2 net=6931189

   load tcpip
   bind ip ip1 addr=207.55.136.20 mask=255.255.255.224
                                          gate=207.55.136.1

the above gives me an "invalid network address" error upon
bootup. it also says "subnet has 0's in it".  huh?  
needless to say, the LAN driver does NOT load for the
first card.

   my fix around this is to go with the first autoexec.ncf
example and only use one segment instead of two.

   question is, how can i use both segments and load tcpip
on the server so that our clients can see our web/mail
server?  is my syntax wrong when in the second autoexec.ncf
example?

   all i know is i've got an idle nic sitting in the server.
it needs to be brought back to life ... with tcpip.  any
tcpip gurus out there, your help is needed.

thanks,

Some versions of the TCP/IP stack on Netware 3.12 dows not support subnet 0. What is the version of TCP/IP? If not, upgrade by TCPN03 which can be found at http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/patlstfind.cgi?2925445
