I would use "dmesg | grep <NIC>".  This will show the physical name for
the device in question.

I'd like to know how I could verify which adapter listed by the OS
corresponds to which slot/port in the actual NIC itself.  This way I can
assure that an active port will failover to a port on the other NIC.  I
have two NIC's w/2 ports each.

(root at test)-> ifconfig -a

        inet netmask ff000000
