Network booting

When booting a linux box from the network, everything goes fine with PXE. However the machine has two network cards. The problem is, the card we boot from that has the PXE support isnt the one that Linux picks up - and so it tries to mount the NFS shares etc using the sceond network card - which of course fails.

So the question really is - how at boot time say as a kernel parameter - can you specify which device should be which label i.e eth0.

Thanks in advance!
