This just came up on my local LUG list. This was taken from a server
install, but I think it will still work.
Here is what they had to say about it:
cp at mintaka:~$ cat /etc/iftab
# This file assigns persistent names to network interfaces. See iftab(5).
eth0 mac 00:90:27:e6:28:d6
eth1 mac 00:c0:f0:28:e8:3c
