Hello,

I am trying to bond two ethernet cards together, they are listed as  
e1000e in the modprobe.conf file. However I keep getting this error:
bonding: bond1: Error: dev_set_mac_address of dev eth2 failed! ALB  
mode requires that the base driver support setting the hw address also  
when the network device's interface is open

Does anyone know how to correctly bond them in CentOs 5.2?

Thanks!
