About Option 4, Configure Ethernet Names Interactively
You can see which ports have been assigned what, and make custom assignments, by pressing 4 (Configure ethernet names interactively) during the installation. Example output below (input shown in bold).
This example shows a machine with a two-port add-in card that has lower PCI addresses, assigned by default, than the built-in ports. The default assignments use the add-in card but the desired assignments are the built-in ports: the third default (eth10) device for eth0; and the fourth default (eth11) device for eth1. This example shows the assigning of the interfaces.
Enter 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 : 4
