Hardware keeps changing in system-config-network


i'm setting a FC3 box and i notice the hardware listed in system-config-network keeps changing from on second to another.
When i activate kudzu at startup, the right cards are listed, then i try to activate my wifi card, it fails (this is another problem) and the hardware list changes to some cards i don't even have. What is wrong with this thing?
Right after startup, /sbin/iwconfig gives me a wireless card on eth0 which is fine. but then after trying and failling to activate it, all eth give "no wireless extensions"
This is so weird...

I need help, thanks!!
