Bug#442436: debian-installer: sets up firewire as eth0

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

First, kudos on the graphical installer.  It went
quite smoothly.

I have an Intel G3-based motherboard with both 8169 ethernet and
firewire.  The installer offers firewire as the first choice for
network, despite the fact that I had a live ethernet connection
plugged into the ethernet jack.

After installing and booting into the new system, I found that the
ethernet port was configured as eth1 instead of eth0.

This seems counter-intuitive.  I must admit I wasn't even aware you
could do tcp-ip networking over firewire.
