eth aliases problem

hi all...
I had a AMD XP 2.0Ghz, ASUS A7S333 and 256MB ram + 2 ne2k-pci nics running debian sid.
I got a Barton 2.7Ghz, ASUS A7N8X-X and 512MB, + 1 ne2k-pci nic (and 1 nvnet onboard) now and i didnt want to reinstall debian. So i just put my old HD in the new box and booted it. I was running a custom 2.6.8-4 kernel and it had only suport for my old mobo, so i used knopix to install a kernel 2.6.8 standard image in it and everything was ok.. custumized the kernel, instaled nvidias drives to get nvnet to work and now i have just one problem.
I want nvnet to be eth0 and i have my modprobe.conf set to
alias eth0 nvnet
alias eth1 ne2k-pci
when debian boots, it loads ne2k-pci, but it does not load nvnet, dont know why.. and, it loads ne2k-pci as eth0, not 1.
them i go, run modprobe nvnet and it loads it as eth1...
any ideas?

Put those drivers to /etc/modules (or use modconf). Normally the order of the drivers in the listing defines which one is which, not the alias -lines in modprobe.conf.
