I have a simple problem. I have a computer running Ubuntu server 8.04 LTS with 2 NICs. One on the motherboard going to the internet and one PCI card going to an internal network. During the install it detected the NIC on the motherboard as eth1 and the PCI card as eth0. I would like them the other way around. Especially because the PCI NIC will not be being used by the host server, only for some virtual machines that will be running on it.
So, currently the machine boots up activates eth1 (motherboard NIC) gets an IP with dhcp while leaving eth0 (PCI NIC) alone. This is exactly what I want except for eth0 and eth1 to switch.
