Default 50% packet loss

just to get it out of the way here is my pings

64 bytes from icmp_seq=25 ttl=64 time=0.060 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=27 ttl=64 time=0.063 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=29 ttl=64 time=0.062 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=31 ttl=64 time=0.061 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=33 ttl=64 time=0.064 ms

--- ping statistics ---
34 packets transmitted, 17 received, 50% packet loss, time 33004ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.060/0.075/0.285/0.053 ms

I have two machines: mail and argon connected via 2 crossover cables

mail has 3 nics: eth0 = pcnet32 --> lan
eth1 = tulip --> X-over --> argon
eth2 = 8139too -> X-over -> argon

argon also has 3 nics: eth0 = e100 --> lan
eth1 = pcnet32 --> X-over --> mail
eth2 = 8139too --> X-over --> mail

aliases is correct and /etc/network/interfaces should be fine:

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet static
# hwaddress ether 00:02:B3:48:50:2C
# gateway
up ifenslave bond0 eth1 eth2
down ifenslave -d bond0 eth1 eth2

I just realized that the HWaddress was commented out. I removed the # and presto it works fine.

I'll leave the full comment, incase someone else runs into this problem.
