Intel 82546GB and SuSe 8.0 again

Hi experts!

after the successful resolving of my Problem (please have a look
 
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Linux_Networking/Q_21410697.html )

do I have following problem after the reboot:

I allways have to type : ifdown eth0. After that (and this works only with eth0) I can ping and the
connection works. It is also possible to wake up eth0 with a different IP-adress ifconfig 192.168.0.xxx.

But I have to do the same procedure after every reboot :-( Why did I lose my configuration?

You are confusing the TCP/IP stack and routing engine by having both interfaces configured for the same subnet. Such a configuration make no sense from a networking standpoint and won't help if you are trying to get more bandwidth on the network. Now if the goal is to have the machine respond to more than one IP you need to shut down eth1 and create and IP alias for the second IP on eth0.

There is a conf-file:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

by editing IPADDR field we can change ip-address..

this needs "/etc/init.d/network restart"
or simply reboot

Yes, but after restarting the network, pinging is impossible.
I have to shutdown with ifdown eth0. After that, the connection works.
than I can do ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.76
and both eth's are working correct.
After restart or reboot begins the same...  

I've got following scripts:

ifcfg_eth0
BOOTPROTO="static"
BROADCAST="192.168.0.255"
IPADDR="192.168.0.76"
NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
NETWORK="192.168.0.0"
STARTMODE="onboot"
UNIQUE="AMUB.8736487......"

ifcfg_eth1
BOOTPROTO="static"
BROADCAST="192.168.0.255"
IPADDR="192.168.0.75"
NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
NETWORK="192.168.0.0"
STARTMODE="onboot"
UNIQUE="1hz0.8736487......"

in ifcfg_eth0 file
change IPADDR="192.168.0.76" to IPADDR="192.168.1.76"
save the file
and reboot the system.

Thanxs,
Joju.
