[ILUG] Two network cards

Having recently installed Linux onto a Dell 1600SC server, I have a niggling
The server contains an embedded Gigabit ethernet card, and when I went to
use that, I couldn't get it to work. Linux picks it up as eth0 but it
refused to allow anyone access the server. So, I put the card from the
previous server (a 10/100MB) into the server and deleted the reference to
the card. Everything was fine. The card is designated eth1 by Linux.
Anyway, I had occasion to reboot the server today and it found the Gigabit
card and installed it as eth0 again. Network failed to allow anyone to log
It seems that if I have the Dell card installed, the network won't function,
and if I delete it, everything is fine.
Is there a way around this? I guess the obvious thing would be to get the
Dell card operating.
