Not to look a gift horse in the mouth but that seems a wee bit too easy.. 
what if anything do I need to do about my modprob.conf

cat /etc/modprobe.conf
include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist
alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 via-rhine
alias eth2 epic100

how do those ethX relate to the ifcfg-ethX in sysconfig/network-scripts?  
Is Modprob saying eth0 is the 3com and then ifcfg is saying No it's eth4 
(as a bad example)
