configuring 2 network cards?


I just installed slackware 10.0, i have two identical network cards installed in my computer, both are r8139 lan cards. When installied, NIC integrated on the motherboard sets up as eth1, NIC on PCI slot sets up as eth0.

Everything is working fine i would just like to change them so that NIC on the motherboard would be eth0 & NIC on the PCI slot eth1.

I compiled drivers for NIC in kernel, any ideas?

If they 're identical, why do you prefer one assigned to eth0 than the other
