Configuring 2nd nic card

Hi,
I have a Windows 2000 Server domain controller with a few workstations
connecting to it. I have one web server running Windows 2003
Server(with 2 nic cards) but it is not on the domain, rather a
workgroup. The 1st nic card(Local LAN 1) is assigned a real static ip
going from the hub directly out to the dsl modem and out to internet.
I want the 2nd nic to be connected to my internal hub, thus
192.168.1.x. I assigned the 2nd nic a static internal private ip of
192.168.1.12, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.1, and the DNS i
used was another win2k3 server(workgroup) machine that has a real
static ip. Am i doing this right since i get the message
"WARNING--MULTIPLE DEFAULT GATEWAYS ARE INTENDED TO PROVIDE REDUNDANCY
TO A SINGLE NETWORK(INTERNET OR INTRANET). THEY WILL NOT FUNCTION
PROPERLY WHEN THE GATEWAYS ARE ON TWO SEPARATE, DISJOINT NETWORKS(SUCH
AS YOUR INTRANET OR INTERNET). DO YOU WISH TO CONTINUE? YES OR NO

Any info would be appreciated!

I have a Windows 2000 Server domain controller with a few workstations

So this is a "hub" on the external side, just for the server and the DSL
modem, right?
I want the 2nd nic to be connected to my internal hub, thus
192.168.1.x. I assigned the 2nd nic a static internal private ip of
192.168.1.12, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.1, and the DNS i

Leave the internal "default gateway" blank (if it complains, confirm that is
what you wish.)

The warning below is explaining that you can have only one default....
TO A SINGLE NETWORK(INTERNET OR INTRANET). THEY WILL NOT FUNCTION
PROPERLY WHEN THE GATEWAYS ARE ON TWO SEPARATE, DISJOINT NETWORKS(SUCH
AS YOUR INTRANET OR INTERNET). DO YOU WISH TO CONTINUE? YES OR NO

....and you want the to default TO THE INTERNET gateway on the DSL side.

Point the OTHER internal machines to this (192.168.1.1) as THEIR default
gateway.

Presumably you are running NAT (in RRAS) on this server -- if not, you need
to enable RRAS, add NAT to IP, add the external (DSL) NIC as the Public
interface,
and add the internal (192.168.1.1) NIC as the Private interface.
