I guess I should have been more specific.  This has to happen  
_before_ it gets to an OS.  I'm using kickstart and the device has to  
be eth0 before kickstart starts to load, I suppose it'd be possible  
to decompile the kickstart boot files and regenerate it but that's a  
hassle I hope to avoid if possible.
