The gnome network admin tool, (at least in Ubuntu) allows you to disable
network manager from handling one network interface. Using that, you can
allow network-manager to manage one of the interfaces, then manually
configure the second interface.

Its important that they are in different subnets though, otherwise
things don't quite work.
