Description Denis 2003-10-02 13:50:41 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
I have 2 network cards in my computer, which are correctly displayed in the
Hardware Browser as follow:

VT6105 [Rhine-III]

In the Network Configuration Program, under the Hardware tab, I see

Description                 Type       Device   Status
VT6105 (Rhine-III)          Ethernet   eth0     ok
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+       Ethernet   eth0     ok
VIA VT86c100A Rhine-II PCI  Ethernet   eth1     configured

When I delete the VIA VT86 line and I change the VT6105 from eth0 to eth1, I
save, I reboot the computer.
The configuration is back to the one hereabove. None of my changes has beens saved!
Devices working with eth0 do not work.
Assigning different IRQ to the VT6105 and to the RTL doesn't help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the 2 network cards above
2. Start redhat 9, start Network Configuration
3. Look in Hardware tab

Actual Results:  2 cards are assigned eth0

Expected Results:  The second card should have eth1 instead of eth0

strange... did you bind the devices to the ethernet address (MAC)??
please attach the output of:
# redhat-config-network-cmd
