Ethernet Device.



My motherboard has a 100MHz Ethernet device built in, but my router and
other machines are all 1GHz.  I bought an Intel PLWA839 1GHz Ethernet Card to 
get the higher transfer rates between this machine and the rest.

On booting the system up on f9 the device shows as eth1.
HOWEVER, when booting up fc6 (there are multiple OS on multiple partitions
of the disk) it shows as:


__tmp438149240 Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1B:21:2D:30:D8  
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Now thats an ugly name.
Any way to get it to use eth1 here too?
I assume that it is just that some info is missing in a table somewhere.
