William, I think you may be experiencing an issue with udev. If
you've mounted this image on another machine, all of the eth ports
will be assigned to specific MAC addresses (the ones on your laptop).
If you then put the image on the soekris, you'll see that the eth
ports you thought you had won't appear to be working. I think you can
delete the udev entries for your laptop's MAC addresses and that
should clear up the issue. I don't recall exact details, but a "man
udev" should do it.
