the command : ifconfig ethx promisc   should do it.
it will tell you when you do ifconfig ethx if it is in PROMISC or not

How do you configure an interface (eth0) to be in proisc mode during the execution of the network script at bootup.  I have set the eth0 to be a black interface and would like it to be in promisc mode on boot so that I don't have to shell in and type the command every time it reboots.  Thanks in advance.
