I've been banging my head on this the last couple of hours.  WBEL4 (kudos 
John) on a box that has 6 network interfaces.

	1.	Onboard NIC, Intel 100
	2.	3com 3C90X
	the next is a quad port NIC.

	3.	via-rhine
	4.	via-rhine
	5.	via-rhine
	6.	via-rhine

Currently the order is:

	eth0	via-rhine
	eth1	via-rhine
	eth2	via-rhine
	eth3	via-rhine
	eth4	3com 3C90X
	eth5	Onboard NIC, Intel 100

I'd like the order to be:

	eth0	Onboard NIC, Intel 100
	eth1	3com 3C90X
	eth2	via-rhine
	eth3	via-rhine
	eth4	via-rhine
	eth5	via-rhine

Which will then match my current set of firewall rules.

I've modified/updated /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/sysconfig/hwconf to no 
avail.  In particular /etc/sysconfig/hwconf keeps getting reset to its 
original value.

Any clue greatfully appreciated.
