	Thank you. I think I may have stumbled on to what I need
to do discussed in the Handbook under the multi-homed host
section. We won't be doing any routing between the two networks
but I think I have been using the wrong form of the route
command as there is an example of something very similar which I
will try to see if the second NIC will  finally find its router.

	I appreciate your answer as it clears up a few more
questions I had.

	My thanks also to

Again thanks to all. I will keep digging.
