I have, at least on 4 different bits of hw, but I worked on it too
much to be a good tester of it. Others have installed successfully.

One thing that 0.5 has is that it almost always picks the ordering of
the NICs _in reverse_ of what 0.4 did. So perhaps your NIC identities
are reversed? You can test changing the ethernet cables around or use
xs-swapnics (and then reboot).

Other than that, I'm a bit lost. Can you get any output from calling
ethtool eth1 ? What's the physical hw? It's also possible (though
unlikely) that F9 has bad drivers for your specific hw...
