Network config gone haywire

So I did an update using up2date for my RH9 box. Everything goes screwy. My network won't work, and now I'm getting cards in my network gui that I don't have like: "Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 model NC100". It's super weird. And all the cards want to be eth1. Everytime I close the gui and reopen it's all the same.
What I've got is two cards, one goes to the cable modem(eth0) amd the other to a network hub(eth1). Using iptables I routed all my network traffic to eth0 so I could use my server as a router. So I don't even know where to begin to fix this.

If RH9 is like the earlier RH versions, the network interface configuration files are all in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and their names start with ifcfg- (e.g. ifcfg-eth0). I would start by looking at those files and see if they make sense. If you have a backup from before you updated, compare against those files.

You might also take a look at /etc/modules.conf

Fixed it

Ok... so I am not really sure how I fixed it, but I took out all the net cards and booted up and let kudzu delete the configurations. Then shutdown, reinstalled cards, powered up and let kudzu do a fresh install. Still got screwy results (like both net cards wanted to be eth0 even after I'd change them) but then I saw in the network gui you could probe and bind to a mac address. I did it and now it works.....I think.
