yes i'm trying to run two instances right now:
dhcpd <options> nxge0                       (it works fine)
dhcpd <options> nxge1                       (it didn't work and
through the previous error of "Multiple interfaces ...")

i thought it should work without any issue since there are two
different physical interfaces. am i missing something.
