Hi,

AFAIK RHEL and derivatives do not use that particular udev rules file. I think instead you should be looking that the value of HWADDR in
Code:
 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX
... but it seems you are a "RHCE", so perhaps I'm missing something here.

His profile says: Distribution RHCE, so he doesn't state he is a RHCE (RedHat Certified Engineer) but he uses RHEL.
And even if he was RHCE or MSCE or WECE (WhatEverCertifiedEngineer) he should have the right to ask such questions...

Back to topic:

If you are using RHEL 5 you are likely not to have this file. Have a look in /etc/udev/rules.d/. File 60-net.rules might be of interest.
And, like evo2 said above, look at the HWADDR entry in the ifcfg-XXXX files.

That file actually says what device name to use based on the device mac address.

You can use ifconfig to find this. Look for "HWaddr" in the output.
