RHEL 3 AMD64 ethX ordering



Has anyone else noticed that the x86_64 kernel enumerates the PCI bus
differently than the i686 kernel?  We have an Opteron platform where the
first ethernet port shows up as "eth0" with the i686 kernel and "eth1"
with the x86_64 kernel.  Red Hat claims this is because the x86_64
kernel uses ACPI and the i686 kernel does not.  Since we want to be able
to install these Opteron systems with 32-bit or 64-bit Linux AND have
the Ethernet interface be eth0 at all times, any clues on how we'd
accomplish this?
