Hi Paul,

Do you have the following file on your system:
/etc/init.d/net.eth3 ?

If not, do the following:

# cd /etc/init.d
# ln -s net.lo net.eth3

That should create the "net.eth3" script for you.

Alternatively, edit the following file:
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

This file contains the udev-rules to have each net-device use the same ethX 
every time.
