What can you do with a second Ethernet port?

Well, as a WinCE developer you can set up a private network on the 2nd NIC so that when your Bootloader starts sending out BOOTME to 255.255.255.255 you don't whack the public network. That's one GOOD use, but 99.9% of the folks DON'T NEED NO STEENKIN 2nd NIC!
