I'm running an Ubuntu 9.10 server that has multiple NICs in it. I'd like to make sure that each time the kernel boots up, the NIC with MAC address
01:23:45:67:89:ab gets assigned to eth0 and the one with MAC address
ba:98:76:54:32:10 gets assigned to eth1.
On Fedora, I was able to do this by specifying the MAC address in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0 HWADDR=01:23:45:67:89:ab # the rest of the configuration goes here
(and similarly for ifcfg-eth1).
Is there something equivalent syntax in /etc/network/interfaces for doing this on Ubuntu?
