Replying to myself here, as I'm going crazy anyway.

It turns out it was just a fluke the server booted up with the correct
order.  Another reboot and the nic's are all screwed up again, the
built in and external card sharing eth0, the second built in as eth1.

On the second server, things are the same even with the new rules, nic
drvier order is seemingly chosen at random with each boot.

Any other thoughts and suggestions!?
