11 I thought that,but reading the question again, I don't think the problem
12 is naming, but the wrong driver claiming the card. I think the
13 solution may be to set rc_hotplug="!net.*" in /etc/conf.d/rc then the
14 modules will load in the order given in autoload.
16 Or check the modules' documentation for options that will control which
17 cards they attach themselves to, which would be a cleaner solution.
