Can Hotplug detect USB devices in a certain order?

I have two USB joypads(a Logitech Dual Action and a Gravis Gamepad Pro).
Both are detected fine and are working well.
However hotplug detects them in an apparently random order upon booting.
What this means is that sometimes dev/js0 is the Logitech Dual Action and other times it's the Gravis Gamepad Pro.
It's a rather frustrating situation.

If anyone has any clues and would like to help it would be greatly appreciated.
Is there a command to quickly switch dev/js0 with dev/js1? Or a way to get hotplug to detect one USB socket before the other reliably?
I know it's possible to insert a sleep command in the hotplug scripts(if it's a timing issue) but I can't find useful information on the hotplug scripts anywhere.

I'm running Mandrake 10 at the moment but I've long had this problem with Mandrake 9.2 and SuSE 8.0 as well.
