The cards are detected fine (they're PCI), and the different IOs and
IRQs show up in the boot log. So I doubt that this is the problem.

Yeah, IP Masquerade is the going-forward plan :-)

Right now, I can connect to MediaOne fine (on eth0), but I can't even
ping the internal network from the Linux machine (on eth1). Is there
some setup that I'm missing? Or is it a flaky card?
