Little problem with network + firewire

Hi guys,

wanted to ask you guys what we could do about this or if it is not so 
important.  I have one notebook where firewire gets eth0 and the network 
controller eth1.  The network bootscript and net-setup script both fail 
since they assume eth0 (a "dhcpcd eth1" by the user works of course).
