No, I am not using any Linux applications that are configured for a
certain connection. I want WinXP under Parallels to access the wired
corporate network, but have Linux access the internet via the wireless
connection that is not connected to the corporate internet proxy. It is
usually much faster and I can get my private email from it where I can't
via the corporate network.

Anyhow, I got them both working. I setup Yast to use traditional
control, then set the eth0 as it was default from the installation. Then
set eth1 DNS servers etc. so DHCP would not update them. Then executed
the command route add gw I could then access the wireless
network via Linux with not change in WinXP.

Only remaining problems are how to get ifplugd to start the wireless at
boot. eth1 was added to the ifplugd.conf file, but probably needs more
time or something. Also have figure out where to put the route command
so it will be executed automatically during boot.
