Related to this; if one configures the 2 nics with yast , the latter insist
(in my case at least) on having a hostname, name server, domain, etc for both
nics (this is with 2 fixed ip addresses).

Isn't that strange? Should the name for the nics not be different for each
one. For eth0 e.g. linux and for the other nic (eth1) e.g.; linux-eth1?

And wouldn't it be sufficient if one of the nics carried the name server(s),
search domain and domain instead of having both cards carry that information?
