Wait a moment - are you trying to bring up both eth0 and eth1 on the
same network? The pan0 is not the second NIC. I don't remember what
it is off hand...

As far as moving messages from one computer to another when having
network problems, I find saving the output to a PEN drive, or flash
memory card and moding that to another machine works well. (Kind of
like the old "sneaker net" that consisted of moving floppies from
machine to machine... :-)
