You don't make a local interface be the gateway like this. If you need
to do that, then you need to use iptables (or ipchains if you prefer the
older method) if your doing masquerading or you route 192.168.2.0/24
through the 192.168.1.0/24 interface with route statements.

RedHat also has issues with giving two different physical interfaces IP
addresses within the same subnet.
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:DA:4D:54:C4
inet addr:192.168.2.6 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:4 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:4
Carrier errors are physical errors such as a bad cable, NIC, hub, or
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
You'll have to get this set to 1 in order to have the kernel route
packets between local interfaces. How that routing occurs is a function
A) the ip/netblock of the interface(s)
B) the source and destination ip/netblock of the packet
C) static route configuration
D) ipchains or iptables
Look in /etc/sysctl.conf for the (obvious) fix to this.
Note that in my opinion, none of the things that I have pointed out will
have any positive impact on your card getting recognized. These are
only things that will make the system work properly once you get the
driver to recognize the card you have installed.
