How do I remove network interfaces from the command line in opensuse 11.2?

eth0 is integrated into my laptop. I plugged in a PCMCIA NIC which got the name eth1. I unplugged it and plugged in another one which got the name eth2. Finally I plugged it and plugged in a third on which got the name eth3. Now, I have two network cards in my laptop, one named eth0 and one named eth3.  How do I remove the unexisting interfaces (eth1 and eth2) and make sure eth3 get the name eth1?

Trying to fix this issue I messed up... I commented out the unwanted interfaces in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and now opensuse hangs at "System Boot Control: Running /etc/init.d/boot.local

Booting in failsafe mode give the same results... What do I do?
