dual ethernet ports problem.

i have got a system which has 2 eth ports. i use one of them (eth0) to
"network boot" the system
using dhcp, tftp and then mount the nfs file system on it.
this leaves the other port (eth1) unusable. i cannot ping to the other
system through it.
but when i ping any of the two eth ports from some other system i get
the reply back.
but to my amazement the mac entries of both the ports is that of eth0 in
arp table. (arp command)
why and how eth0 is acting as a proxy (perhaps) for both the ports and
how can i disable it?
could anybody please help me in this concern.
