Ah, I was reading in that section precissely, it is 13.3. But the
"persistant" word does not appear there, it must be a feature of 9.2, or
it is not documented in 9.1.

The trick here seems to name the file as
"/etc/sysconfig/network/fcfg-eth-id-xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx", with the mac
address. The file contains the token you mention:

# You may set an interface name which is independant of the order of driver
# loading.
# Note, though, that the genuine names (e.g. eth*) cannot be used here.
#PERSISTENT_NAME='en0'

It seems that instead of using "eth0" the name "en0" has to be used.


Is that the method documented in 9.2?
