RE: How do I make my NIC pick the same ETH port every time?
Sounds like a good plan. I do not use DHCP and having the NIC built into the
kernel sounds swell. However, I am very new to debian - is there any chance
I could get a step-by step procedure for this? It would take me a week to
figure out otherwise.
I already have modconf installed, which I think is the program I would use
to do that, but past that, I am lost...

what i would do if i had this problems is make the NIC are firewire card
load as modules then i can put a wait between them, e.g. i would load the
NIC when everything is booting and put a sleep and load the firewire
.. or you could build the NIC into the kernel and load the firewire as
just make sure they always get loaded in the same order with a good time
gab between them.
also i would make sure the nic interface is up apon system boot, if you
are using dhcp this might be a problem if your not connected to the
network at boot.
