      You reinstalled the OS to fix a configuration issue? Yikes.

      There's really no black magic to configuring the IP address in suse
      linux - the OS installer asks how the detected nics are to be
      configured, but if you sidestepped that question during the install, you
      can always go back into yast and set up the nics. It's pretty self
      explanatory. If it's not working, it's not because there's some secret
      to setting up networking, it just means a problem has arisen somewhere.

      What changed between the time dhcp addressing was working, and when it
      stopped working?

        That is the secret magic question. I have no idea.

          May be I can be of help.

          First unplug your network connection. Then run YAST. Click on Network Devices.
          Network devices will be displayed. Click Newtwork Card. A dialog box will
          popup. You can see your two Network cards there. First click on the one at
          the top. It will be highlighted. Then click the EDIT button below. You can
          see the options. Click on the Auotmatic Adress Setup (via DHCP) and click
          Next. Repeat it for the second card. Now your both cards are configured for
          DHCP.

          Plaease have a look at your newtwork configuration documents of you hub,
          switch etc. for details.

          I attached a screenshot of my installation -of course Turkish- but graphics
          worths mre than thousend words.

          I hope it works.
