In some hardware + software combinations the boards keeping getting
recognized randomly as eth0 & eth1. In such cases you can fix a
particular interface to always get recognized consistently by editing
interface file by adding hwaddr statement like:

hwaddr 00:1a:6b:6c:39:48

PS: I know most of people do not follow email niceties (mostly they
are not aware) but if you follow bottom post/in-line post style of
email conversations it becomes a whole lot easier to carry on
meaningful dialogue and you can snip out what is not meaningful too.
Most people just hit reply button and top post leaving prior message
appended uselessly at bottom. See if you can adopt this style and
persuade others. In case you are already doing this ..... great,
spread the message.
