Udev gives network headache

I recently switched mainboard in one of my computers, and suddenly eth0 becomes eth1. This makes my /etc/network/interfaces point to the wrong interface, thus not giving me the correct IP address, which in return makes DNS fail, which in return makes NFS fail… Let’s just say that a plethora of problem arise!

Showmount gives me this error message when I try to list exports on the NFS server:

clnt_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to receive
