A Debian/Ubuntu question:

On Redhat boxes, network drivers are aliased using /etc/modprobe.conf eg
there will be lines like:

alias eth0 tulip

Where's the equivalent on Debian/Ubuntu? It's not in /etc/modules or
/etc/modprobe.d/*
On Debian, it is /etc/modutils/aliases

Basically, the stuff in /etc/modutils is used to write /etc/modules.conf on each reboot.
Screwed if I know why. someone decided it was a great idea atm I guess.
