[CentOS] network interface question

It looks like when there are no ifcfg-* files , then the kernel
assigns some default logical names ( don;t know how and why), but if
we create ifcfg-ethx files then it overrides it. That should be ok (?)
i think.

One more question:

I have eight nics and its getting difficult to me which MAC id
represents which physical port. Any way to find this?

Thanks!
Paras.
