ipconfig No RUNNING message



I am running 
 
RH Linux oak 2.4.21-37.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Sep 7 13:28:55 EDT 2005 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
 
I have two NIC's.  When I run ifconfig I see both interfaces, but only
one shows a running message.  They are both up and usable, as I can ping
each one, and ssh to either one.  I am certain that it is running, as
I've shut the primary down and can still ssh to the secondary.  Why is
the RUNNING message not showing when I list it via ifconfig?  This is
causing me troubles, because I am trying to install an Oracle ASM
instance, and the installer require that both of these interfaces show
RUNNING.
