Hi all

Can I ask question about modprobe.conf? I think fedora
is same as Centos. 

I have 1 x 4 ports broadcom NIC and 1 x 2 ports Intel
NIC installed in fedora 6 system

in /etc/modprobe.conf

the module:
aliase e1000 eth0
aliase e1000 eth1
aliase tg3   eth2
aliase tg3   eth3
aliase tg3   eth4
aliase tg3   eth5

but the dmesg|grep eth
eth4 and eth5 is intel card

but i change to the moderprobe and reboot

aliase tg3   eth0
aliase tg3   eth1
aliase tg3   eth2
aliase tg3   eth3
aliase e1000 eth4
aliase e1000 eth5

dmesg |grep eth

eth0 and eth1 becomes intel card

As I add additional and remove NIC before so that I
removed HW line HW address in all
/etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-ethX file

Now. the system seems random in above option 1 and
option 2 after rebooting everytime!

Thank you for your help
