Reversing ethernet ports

Hi guys,
I need my configuration of the eth ports to be in reverse order.
So instead having eth0, eth1 mapped out to port 1,2.
Ive tried changing the modprobe.conf file but its still not working for me.
This is my modprobe.conf
alias eth0 sk98lin
alias eth1 sk98lin

options eth0 io = 0xa000 irq = 11
options eth1 io = 0xb000 irq = 5

I know the question look stupid but trust me i tried the obvious solution.
For some reason its not working. Any suggestions?

I think they get assign a number according to the oder they are installed.
If both are present on install then the PCI route would determine which is first.

The irq is assigned depending on the card (hard coded or PnP) but can be set in the bios PCI slots for PnP devices.

Try reversing the crads in the slots, leave out the second one, and see if the reverved card is now etho.
Add the second card in the same slot as the other was in orginally, and it should be eth1.

The 0 and 1 are not ports, they are device naming conventions.

Do the Math
