I am trying to install 8.10B2 and notice that my onboard NIC is assigned as Eth1. The additional Asus NIC is assigned Eth0 but only Eth1 works. I can access the net etc via Eth1 and complete the apt-get finctions. At some point in the install, Eth0 becomes fuinctional (I presume the required software is downloaded during dist-upgrade??)
Anyway, my question is, is this a bad siituation? I removed the NIC and rebooted and notice the remaining onboard nic is still eth1...my installs arent working so I am seeking advice on possible causes.
