Description of problem:
Installed skipjack - 1 on a 2 NIC box.
Nic's are different types, specifically one uses
tulip.o and other 8139too.o modules.
When configuring these interfaces at boot,  I want to select which one is eth0.
skipjack got them the wrong way around in modules.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install on 2 nic box, where nic's use different modules 
2. note modules.conf will contain 2 alias lines 
3. even chance they are wrong way around.

Expected Results:  Like to select which module corresponds to eth0 on the tabbed
install form.

Boot with 'linux noprobe' if you want to manually load modules to specify the
order.  Defaults are based on PCI bus ordering which is as correct of a way as
you can get.
