Hi Paul,

Will it help if i use FC5?

Ah, didn't notice you were on FC4. This is an FC5-specific bug, so your
problem is something else. I agree with the other posters that suggested
that eth0 and eth1 should be on different networks through.

Hi,

I had even upgraded to FC5 and initscripts-8.31.2-1.i386.rpm but it still does not work.

Anyway, Thanks to Paul, Rick and Tim, since i am unable to change eth0, i changed the network of eth1 and it works.

best regards
