Do you have an eth0 configuration file that has a HWADDR= line in it,
with the MAC of your old ethernet card after the equals sign?  If so,
then it's holding eth0 for that card, even if that card isn't still in
the box.  Remove the line, or set it to the MAC of your new card.

See:  /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0
