      2 NIC Cards

      Yes you could then connect that machine to two different, either logical or physical, networks. If you are running windows NT and you enable IP forwarding it will also function as a router.

      Similar OSes have problems with this configuration. Try to use Network OS, such as WinNT or Un*x.

      multiple NIC’s

      Yes. Each card must have there own IP address and subnet mask to point it to the proper network. You can add as many NIC’s as the machine has IRQ’s to support it. This is called a “Home Network”. This info can be found in most NETWORK ESSENTIALS books.
