13 Try `/sbin/ifconfig -a`. If you are lucky, it will show you an eth1
14 interface or something alike. The issue is that udev keeps track of
15 network interfaces. If it finds a new one, it asigns it a new number
16 instead of reusing the old one. You can change this, but to get
17 everything running fast, just copy your config from eth0 to eth1, create
18 a symlink between /etc/init.d/net.lo and /etc/init.d/net.eth1 and start
19 that one.
21 Hope this helps,
