[svlug] half ethernet working

Just installed debian over the net (Linux gate 2.2.19pre17-compact).
When I installed it asked if I wanted in install over 
ef0 or ef1.  After the installation was complete only ef0
is available.  Both network cards are identical PCI cards.
One works fine and one is invisible.

Any ideas about how to get the other network device available?

My goal with this system is a firewall, one side listens to 
my cable modem (using dhcp) and the other side connects
to my home network (serving dhcp).  So both devices would
be really handy!

Any help would be much appreciated.

PS. dmesg shows that I have both devices installed, but ifconfig 
shows that only one is available.

$ /sbin/ifconfig -av
