Now I get in the syslog: Unknown key: ATTR{address}

I also tried ATTRS{address} seen in some examples, same error.

Digging around google a bit more I came up with different rules, and
fingers crossed, they seem to work!

SUBSYSTEM=="net", SYSFS{address}=="00:1b:21:4d:c3:e8", NAME="eth0"  # pro/1000gt
SUBSYSTEM=="net", SYSFS{address}=="00:e0:81:b5:7a:30", NAME="eth1"  # internal 1
SUBSYSTEM=="net", SYSFS{address}=="00:e0:81:b5:7a:31", NAME="eth2"  # internal 2

I also performed chmod +x on the 60-net.rules file, I noticed some
other files in rules.d were marked as executable, so I figured it
couldn't hurt!
