Thread-topic: Debian & eth0 vs. peth0
It seems that with their specific Xen packages, Debian likes to go against the norm, and rather than calling the Xen bridging device something sensible like "xenbr0", they rename the main physical ethernet device "eth0" to "peth0" and create "eth0" as the Xen bridge (as far as I can tell, anyways).  Anyone know where exactly they do this so I can reverse it?  It's throwing my thinking off, because in all other Linux distros, I've always gone for the eth0 device when needing to do networking, and this name change just messes with things.
