Two network cards...

I have two machines which are connected to internet throug a hub.
In each machine I have two networkcards.
How can I do to connect those machines to each other throug those cards.'
I have tried to add a second interface with netcfg in rh-5.0
with ip-adress 1.0.0.1 on machine one and 1.0.0.2 on machine two.
But I cant ping machine one from machine two or machine two from machine one.
How do I set this up???

First, you should use the IP addresses in 10.0.0.0, not 1.0.0.0

Are you sure each machine can see both network cards? Often you have to pass the kernel a boot parameter through lilo if you want to use more than one card. Adding the following line to lilo.conf, for example, will tell the kernel to look for eth0 at IRQ10, IO0x240 and eth1 at IRQ11, IO0x260:

append="ether=10,0x240,eth0 ether=11,0x260,eth1"

This is generally the problem. If it isn't, the next thing to check is the cable. If you're using twisted pair and the two cards are being connected directly, as opposed to through the hub, you will need to be using a cross-over cable.

Since both of the new NICs are part of the 10.0.0.0 network, you don't even have to do any screwy routing configuration. It should work once you've done the above.

Yes both machines can find two networkcards. There is no colisions (IRQ or I/O adresses)

The connection to internet is through a TP cabel (and through a hub) and it works fine.

What I like to do is to connect my 2 machines directly on the eth1 device. This is through a BNC cabel and both machines has a
DE200 Network card.

Well I have to try to change the ip adress to 10.0.0.0 then..

When I try to do a /sbin/ifup eth1 on machine 2 it says:SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable

You can't use 10.0.0.0 and 10.0.0.255 as your ip addresses but those in between.
Try it and see if any problem encountered.

ps.  Benny's answer is pretty good.
