Cameron,

VCL was created from the beginning with the assumption that there would be two 
NICs in each machine.  One to be used for pushing images to compute nodes and 
for managing the compute nodes.  The other for allowing public access to the 
compute nodes from the end user.  The management node doesn't absolutely have 
to have a public IP address, but it makes administration of it much easier if 
it does have one.

We do hope to get away from requiring the two NICs in the not too distant 
future.

I hope that helps clear things up.  I can clarify further if needed.

Josh
