Question about wireless networks (ipw2100 and why does it choose eth2 over eth1)

I have set up a wireless networks about a dozen times usually with little more than a prayer.

Using debian sarge I wonder why sometimes when I set up my network, it uses eth1 for the wireless network and other times it uses eth2

nurdbox:~# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 no wireless extensions.

eth2 unassociated ESSID:XXXX Nickname:"ipw2100"
Mode:Managed Channel=0 Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate=0 kb/s Tx-Powerff
Retryn RTS thrff Fragment thrff

Power Managementff
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

sit0 no wireless extensions.

does anybody know why it chooses eth2 sometimes and eth1 other times?
