    Anyone have any recommendations for setting up the DNS server and web hosting with three IP addresses and 2 network cards? Basically, I have a machine with two NICs. If one of the NICs goes down and nsY is on that NIC, nsZ will cover things... and all we'd have to do is move the webserver to bind to the second NIC.

    First NIC:

    bind http to NIC1 (IP #1)
    bind nsY to NIC1 (IP #2)

    Second NIC:

    bind nsZ to NIC2 (IP #3)

    should we just alias IP #2 to the first NIC?

    Is there a better way to do this if a box has two NICS? We have three IP addresses to work with.
