Not really. I have a motherboard with 2 NICs of different brand.  When
trying to kick with CentOS 4.1, these interfaces appear in different
order at various stages of kickstart (mainly pxelinux and Linux
kernel).  Unfortunately, the BIOS does not have the option to disable
the interfaces (nor does it have the option to choose which NIC to do

It would be nice if one could just tell Linux/Anaconda to not load a
particular kernel module.
