It would help if we knew what "rebuilding" means in this context

Thanx for the reply.

Moving same OS and programs to different MB, HDD and NICs. Old AT system's
been running near continuous 24/7 for 6 years and HDD's getting noisy.

order in which devices are enumerated on the PCI bus, in which case some

This seems unlikely, as ISA NICs were not uncommon when old system was
built. 'Twould be a very dumb algorithm for discerning which NIC was

Pisser there's 1 ruleset for 2 NICs, and that it's not editable in text
form. If there were a separate ruleset for each NIC 'twould be no problem.

juggling of NICs vs PCI slots is likely to resolve it.

The NIC for the external network is on the MB, the one for the internal
network is a gigabit PCI card. Won't the MB NIC always have a lower I/O
address than a PCI card?

Hard to believe this limitation would be built in to such a fine FW. There
must be a way around it.
