How to separate NICS for SQL traffic, "Search" server traffic

    This could we be a stupid question, but here it goes:

    I will put together a Sharepoint solution.
    It is recommended that I make a NIC available to handle SQL traffic, and
    another NIC available connected to the respective "Sharepoint Search"
    server.

    Imagine I will place my Sharepoint servers in just one network segment,
    let's say 10.0.0.0/8.

    Since I have no way to segment this network further (imagine I have no
    available routers to provide such layer 3 segmentation to separate the SQL
    server from the "Search" server), do you see a supported way I could specify
    Sharepoint_Server_NIC1 => Connects to my SQL Server only,
    Sharepoint_Server_NIC2 ==> Connect to my "search" server ?


    "Recommendation

    Use at least a 100-MB network between servers in a server farm. Equip the
    Web servers in a farm with two network cards-one for user requests and one
    for SQL Server and search network traffic."
