Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have Mandrake 10.1.
I downloaded a file and tried to register it. This file looks for ethernet card and expects eth0 , otherwise it doesn't register. Originally I had two cards, a buit-in (eth1) and a RealTek(eth0). Later, I removed the Realtek (eth0) and the built-in still named eth1 by Mandrake.
How can I configure the eth1 card to be eth0.
regarding the `bug' report:
I was thinking more in the lines of suggesting a command-line/config-file option that lets the user select which file to act on (be it /dev/eth0, /dev/eth1, /dev/hda (*grin*) or whatever); maybe they'd be more understanding.
Asking to change one hardcoded value to another hardcoded value (that works for you) is never the Right Thing. Have you tried the sed approach?
I'm sorry, but I don't know how to remap eth into the other; gurus?
