    SubjectThe magical mystical changing ethernet interface order
    Does anyone know if there's a reason that the ethernet driver initialisation
    order has changed again in 2.5?

    In 2.2.xx, we had eth0 = NE2000, eth1 = Tulip
    In 2.4, we have eth0 = Tulip, eth1 = NE2000
    And in 2.5, it's back to eth0 = NE2000, eth1 = Tulip

    Both interfaces are on the same bus:

    00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Digital Equipment Corporation DECchip 21142/43 (rev 30)
    00:0d.0 Ethernet controller: Winbond Electronics Corp W89C940F

    Its rather annoying when your dhcpd starts on the wrong interface.
