Thanks Per Jessen and scsijon! Your answered helped me a lots!

I am now able to connect with ONE ethernet card, but the second card is not recognized. Since I usually use two Ethernet cards, I hope we can solve that problem too.

not having seen 2 gigabyte ports on a mb before, i'd have a look at the driver source (if provided or available) and see if it's programmed to enable 2 instances of itself. I suspect maybe not, in which case you need to contact the creator for help.

having looked at the board's data, on their website, I suspect it's the same chip handling both ports. Most of the dualport gigabyte boards i've seen have one gigabyte port and one 10/100 port. This site infers it uses one of the ports to dual-purpose handle the .11g also so it may be a hybrid again and the linux device driver people may need contacting anyway.

BTW, do you know how to setup the wireless? I would like to use a wireless network for my PDA, ....
