howto disable eth0 at boot time

I have a 10/100 broadcom chip on my motherboard, that i can't disable in bios or onboard with jumper. Linux picked it up during install and now during boot it takes a very long time to initialize it cuz i dont have it plugged into anything. I use my wireless card for networking, btw it works great and i am happy with it.

How do i tell linux to not start eth0 at boot time?
