Thread-topic: Slackware 12 DomU NIC increments on each start

Just wondering if anyone can help shed some light on a problem I'm
facing. I've got a whole bunch of Xen machines working just fine
already. Recently I've been testing procedures for "P2V" - just taking
an existing Linux system and converting it over to a Xen VM.

So - I have a Slackware 12.0 system running. I used rsync to copy the
system over to a partition on an already running Xen system with several
guests running. I just copied everything over apart from /proc and /sys.
I used my standard, "nothing special" Xen configuration file - pretty
much all the default settings (vif = [ '' ], etc) apart from I change
which disk partition I'm going to run from. Simple enough.

The problem is that networking doesn't work properly. Each time I
shutdown and restart, the NIC increments... eth0, eth1, eth2... I'm on
eth12 right now! Once the system starts I can use ifconfig & route to
assign an IP and a default gateway, and I get a network connection.
Weird stuff.

Does anyone have any ideas what is going on / what I need to do? I just
want my nice eth0...
