It gets weirder. After a reboot we get an ifconfig of:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:17:31:42:00
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:17:31:42:00
Bleh. ;) Everything works.. for a few hours anyway. The startup is still
showing the details below. Spacky network card?

Subject: Weird MAC addresses?
In a new compaq PC with dual netgear 311's (using the fa311 driver from
netgear) we see some interesting effects with the MAC addresses.
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:CC:73:E8:B0
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:E8:6A:FF:7A
yet the startup shows:
Nov 13 11:49:03 fwwlc kernel: eth0: bus=1 func=72 io=0xc000 irq=11 ver=4.3
Nov 13 11:49:03 fwwlc kernel: eth0: ethernet addr=08:00:17:32:42:00
Nov 13 11:49:03 fwwlc kernel: eth1: bus=1 func=80 io=0xc400 irq=12 ver=4.3
Nov 13 11:49:03 fwwlc kernel: eth1: ethernet addr=08:00:17:32:42:00
Any thoughts on why startup would show 2 cards with the same MAC, yet
ifconfig shows 2 different MACs entirely?
eth0 is local lan, eth1 connects to an adsl modem.
