Setting up alias for orinoco_cs

Hey all,
I've got a Dell C640 with the builtin 802.11b wireless. It is working with the orinoco_cs driver. However, when I dock and undock my laptop, the eth0-2 numbers change, so when I am undocked the wireless is eth1, but when I am docked, the wireless is eth2. Is there a way I can set up an alias so the wireless is always eth2 (or wlan0 or something like that)? This would ease the configuration in /etc/network/interfaces. Also, if anyone has any tips using xsupplicant for 802.1x authentication, any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
