Description talbot 2000-03-28 23:06:54 EST
Dual nic system unable to pull an ip address via dhcp while static nic
enabled durring boot.  After performing an upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2, I ran
into this problem.  Then to basically for the sake of time.  I scratched
the sys and reloaded.  During boot if both nic are enabled the system is
unable to pull an ip address via dhcp.  When booted with just the dhcp
enabled nic system pulls ip address just fine, then you can bring up the
second static ip address nic and all works fine.  It is just during boot
that this occurs.  if both nics are disabled and then enable the dhcp nic
before the static all works as well.

This is a change from 6.0 and 6.1.  I loaded 6.1 back onto the system to
verify a couple of things and all worked properly.
