How to change x in ethx in Mandrake
I had two eth cards in my Mandrake Box. A built-in eth1 card and Realtek eth0 (Mandrake numbered them). I removed the external eth0, but the built-in NIC card still numbered eth1 by mandrake.
I have a script that looks for an eth0 only to attach itself to its MAC address. Changing ethx number is easy in other distributers like FC, but I don't know how to do that in Mandrake.
Mandrake also tries to activate the removed NIC card during booting before it reports back a fail.
Any suggestions of how I change the eth card number?
