not always.    I've got some Intel SE7501WV2 based dual xeon servers 
which have dual intel pro1000 NICs onboard...    the BIOS, MS Windows, 
etc think the one labled '0' on the outside is in fact the first port, 
but RHEL2.1 and RHEL3 at least thought that they were swapped, and that 
eth0 was the port labeled '1', while eth1 is the port labeled '0'.

I know I could probably force the issue, instead, I just live with it.   
those servers have been SO reliable I've never had to dink with them.
