Bug#410560: debian-installer: firewire network interface network card selected by default

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

My system has both an ethernet network interface and a firewire 
interface. The firewire interface is apparently also handled as an 
ethernet interface, receiving the 'eth0' name. 

The problem is now that this interface shows up in the network interface
selection screen, and this is the interface selected by default. As I 
don't assume that many people use their firewire interface as their 
primary networking interface, I suggest that the other card is made the 
default selection. (if easily done, maybe this could be done by 
changing the numbering).  

Regards, Geert-Jan.
