Then you may also have the HWADDR=<MAC address> option in your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg=eth? file. That will provent the interface from coming up if the MAC address of the NIC does not match. You can edit the 70-persistent-net.rules file, or you can delete it if you want to renumber the NICs. It will be re-created for you the next time you boot. Change the HWADDR= value requires you do edit the ifcfg-eth? file. (Hand edit or GUI.)
