To fix the network problem, you have to make sure your ethernet card's
driver is loaded before the firewire network driver. that happens on
most systems, but there are some cases where it doesn't. To fix it, add
the module for your network card to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6.
That will cause the driver to load before the hotplug stuff happens,
which will ensure it gets eth0.
