What would probable help fix this, and other problems is to delete
the persistent rules in /etc/udev/rules.d and let them get
re-created. If you are using the same CD/DVD drives, they will not
be affected, but the network rules definitely be affected by
changing motherboards when the NIC is built into the motherboard.
(70-persistent-net.rules is the one for NICs.) At a guess, I suspect
you have eth2 and eth3 instead of eth0 and eth1. If you have a
HWADDR= in your ifcfg-ethx files, you may have to remove them as well.
