Can you explain this a little bit more? I have found two files which i think
could be usable
but i am not sure. (Setup/Local/Cnf/eth.cnf and /etc/rc.local). As you can
see i tried to copy
the code like the code for the first eth card. But he still find only one
eth card. Can you help
me where and what i should edit so that both cards are configured?

Can't you compile the icq masq and ftp modules so i can use this services
with ip masquerading or are these modules included in the newer versions of
mulinux? If they are in the newer version i have an additional question.
First time i tried the version 7.x and 8.x but they didn't want to install
because they had no enough ram to fork a process in the install procedure.
Should the newer versions also work on a 4MB machine?
