Suse 9.2 - How is determined which network cards becomes eth0 and which eth1


I have 2 network cards, one Gigabit and one 100mbit and i want the Gigabit one to become eth0. But unfortunately i get it the other way around.

In older 2.4.x systems i was used to control that by editing modules.conf, but in 2.6.x the whole process seems to have changed and i can't find any place where to configure this.

I'm totally lost, could someone point me into the right direction?

that might do the trick in this particular case, but there must be an 'expert' solution for this?

If i was happy with this kind of solution, i could keep using Windows...

at least in SuSe 9.2 that does not work any longer, and from what i've read over the last 1 1/2 days, it shouldn't work for any 2.6.x based systems, because the whole system has been changed:

You could always put your modules names for your NICS cards in hotplug's blacklist and
then modporbe them by hand, so modprobe.conf is used...
