Cannot activate eth device


When I installed RH9, I set up my onboard NIC as eth0 and a wireless card as eth1. It was working, but then just seemed to stop. I think it is basically because I tried to disable eth0 because it always tried to activate on boot, and it was just adding unnecessary time to my boot. I tried to get thw wireless NIC as eth0. Now linux is a bit confused. I think in some places it is set to eth0 and eth1 in others. Tried removing and reinserting the card(after deleting the profile in neat), but kudzu wouldn't run(even tried running manualy on command prompt).

So, my question is this... how can I completely wipe out all ethernet settings and start from scratch. I want the onboard NIC and onboard modem disable, and the wireless card on eth0.

Thanks.

Thanks a lot.

I'm pretty new to Linux, but a fast learner. I have Linux Bible 7.2 but they didn't outline the issue from what I could see. This is good info.
