Thanks Jerry

Would that leave the machine with all the normal services running on that single Ethernet port, and otherwise function exactly as the eth1 network on a machine with two NICs? I guess I'll find out soon enough...

My second question, is if there are any instructions on setting up a second interface using a USB Ethernet adapter.

If all you need to do is rename eth0 to eth1 just run as root:
and then reboot.
