Mysterious eth* inferfaces



Hello,

I have a bunch of eth interfaces that were set up without my
intervention that have junked up my network configuration a bit. This
is the listing of my /etc/sysconfig/networking/ directory:

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth8.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth7.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth4.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth6.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth5.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth2.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth9
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth3.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/resolv.conf
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth8.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth7.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth1
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/hosts
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth4.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth6.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth5.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth2.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth9
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth0.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth3.bak
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth0

[root localhost ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth4.bak
# nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller
DEVICE=eth4
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:00:6c:af:07:9e
[root localhost ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth5.bak
# nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller
DEVICE=eth5
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:00:6c:e1:08:a6
[root localhost ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth6.bak
# nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller
DEVICE=eth6
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:00:6c:b3:b2:84

Does anyone know where all these ifcfg-eth*.bak files came from? They
seem to be for MAC addresses that don't exist (and never have existed)
on my box. I only have two ethernet cards. Was this part of my Fedora
8 upgrade that went horribly wrong?

/Mike
