Hey All,
   I'm having a problem with RH6.0 and was wondering if 
anyone could help me. I have 2 ethernet cards, the 
first eth0 uses module (3c509), the second eth1 uses 
module (hp-plus) which has a dependence on (8390). My 
conf.modules is set up like so:
alias eth0 3c509
alias eth1 hp-plus
Upon execution of runlvl 3 it skips pass the 3c509 and 
loads the hp-plus as eth0. Then during eth1 
initialization it fails. Typing lsmod show that the hp 
card has loaded successfully but not the 3com. If I do 
a lsmod 3c509 it loads immediately as eth1. I have 
tried swapping the entries around in /etc/conf.modules 
to no luck.
  Also, to compound this some times when switching 
runlvl's from 3 to 1 to 3 the cards will occasionally 
load up properly. I can't figure out what the heck is 
going on here.
   Sorry this message is so lengthy I wanted to be as 
detailed as possible. Thanks everyone.
Kind Regards,
