Forget all about hotplug and put
alias eth0=<driver for eth0>
in your modules.conf or equivalent.

that won't make the system force to do it this way, but it'll help. If
both NICs use the same driver, you should be able to specify which is
which by using the "eth0=" boot parameters, but I don't know its
syntaxis by heart.
