I have just had a similar problem with FC2 and 2 network cards. The
machine I was using to try FC2, was happily working and so was the

network cards and local loopback but nothing else. I eventually found
the problem to be that FC2 identifies the cards differently. What was
eth0 on FC1 became eth1 with FC2 and vice versa. You may have something
