*grrr* Strange thing is networking. This morning people couldn't login
to their Windows boxes (no domain server found). Checked Samba, checked
dhcp, checked all the network cables.
Then I checked the route on our dhcp server and notice there's a missing
route (had this same trouble about 2 years ago but forgot about it!)
/sbin/route add -host 255.255.255.255 dev eth1
And a search on google shows up the following:
# If you have more than one ethernet card, broadcast routes must be
# added for DHCP to work properly.
So, in case you run into the same problem and you're tearing your hair
out, that's how to fix it!
