If you install ifrename (the package) you can put everything
into /etc/iftab and need no init scripts afaict. It just works for me.

I'll try it.

Just curious though, what does your /etc/iftab look like? Do you use "eth0" despite the

"It is discouraged to try to map interfaces to default interfaces names
       such  as eth0, wlan0 or ppp0."

warning in /etc/iftab's man page?

Or....did you go through and change the network settings (/etc/ network/interfaces, etc) produced by the d-i?
