Well, yeah.  Unless I'm reading that incorrectly, it appears that the 
device normaly refered to as 'eth0' is now 'Intel'.  Does this ring any 
bells as to how it was changed?

Though I haven't bothered with persistent naming rules, I'd guess this 
will work:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network stop #This will probably error on you
mv /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0 \
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start
