I just had a weird problem. I have a system with 2 ethernet cards (one intel e1000 on-board) and one realtek PCI running debian. If I boot the 2.4 kernel eth0 is the on-board intel e1000 and the realtek is eth1. If I boot the 2.6 kernel eth0 is the realtek and eth1 is the intel.
Why would this happen? Is there a way to insure that a specific adapter comes up with a specified designation? this could be a real problem for a system with multiple cards with different networks.
