yep, its udev thats acting up allright. seems one of its scripts keep adding 
to one of the others.

a quick hack for me would be to nuke the one that keeps setting the eth* 
entries as i have no idea how the udev script works.

as in, both card have the same mac maintained, but each time the driver is 
modprobed in the script triggers and writes out a new line in the script 
thats supposed to maintain the eth across reboots. funny thing is that while 
firewire kept getting eth0 (even if it had as many entries in the script file 
as my true ethernet card) the ethernet card got a new eth each time.

ugh, udev scripts are deep waters for me :(
