First NIC appearing as eth10 instead of expected eth0



Hi All,

I am running Fedora 8 32-bit with no updates (fresh install) on a server with a Tyan S5380 motherboard with the latest 2.00 BIOS. This motherboard has two Intel GbE ports on the motherboard.

Oddly, when I type ifconfig -a, these GbE ports appear as eth10 and eth11. There is no eth0. I've been around Linux for a few years and have never seen anything like this, so I'm stumped. Why would it not map these GbE ports as eth0 and eth1, as expected?

[root localhost ~]# ifconfig -a

Any ideas on this?

Thanks!
