Default Re (2): Meaningful names


Serial numbers work for Linksys adapters because they are legible.
Otherwise I could stick bits of tape and mark them "e0", "e1" and "e2".

All just names which let you identify the parts. Analogous to naming
your children. Don't give two the same name. If you don't name them
they get defaults such as BC4320971 (Birth Certificate 4320971)
... or eth3.

Name it "mobo". If there are two adapters on the mobo, "moboleft" and
"moboright"? =8~)) There must be a MAC address if you prefer that.
Or just leave the default eth0.
