Node boot disk to designate eth0

is there a switch I can pass to the node floppy routine that will cause the
node to boot using a designated ethernet adapter?  I have one onboard 10mb
adapter and a PCI 100 mb adapter (eth0), but the node tries to connect
throught the onboard eth1.  I cannot disable the onboard adapter in BIOS
(compaq :( ), so I need pass a pararmeter at boot time to use eth0.  Can
this be done?
