Need to assign all requests for an IP to the second adapter.

I have two Windows 2000 servers. Each server has two network adapters. They need to talk to each other since one server is a Web Server and the second server is a Database Server. I am planning to attach a crossover 1 Gbps cable to the second adapter on each. Now I need a way for the Web server to use the second adapter for all requests for data from the SQL server. How can I do this?

You could use IPs from different network and configure SQL and IIS to exchange data over that IPs,

Front end IP SQL 10.0.0.10     back end 192.168.0.10
                              Connection with crossover cable on back end NICs
Front end IP IIS 10.0.0.11 back end 192.168.0.11

We'll keep this solution in mind, right now the network was upgraded and the original problem has diminished in size.
