No..they are both on same wire..Setting them on different wires really does 
not makes much use and creates a whole bunch of troubles.On the same wire this
has one simple use: the primary card is 3com509-it is fastest card i ever
seen and gives throughput to 700-800Kb/s which is pretty good,but it lacks
completely promiscuous mode so to run tcpdump & friends i have NE2000-it is slow
as hell but it is ok for tcpdump purposes..:)
