Description Rogelio Noriega 2001-08-06 16:10:44 EDT
Description of Problem:

Dell Precision Workstation 530

I came across this by accident, if eth0 is up and running and "ifup eth0" 
is ran it will bring down the network card. Deleting /var/run/dhcpcd-
eth0.pid, will allow you to run ifup eth0 without errors and bring the 
network back up. This happens with Intel and 3Com cards.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run ifup eth0 twice

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Running ifup eth0 twice should not bring down the NIC.
