Multiple interfaces

Before I go and try it, can anyone tell me what will happen if I use
Etherboot on a system with multiple identical PCI network interfaces?

I am hoping that it will send out the BOOTP requests on all interfaces
and listen to responses on all, then go with the interface that it
receives a reply on.

Alternatively, can I deterministically expect that it will always use
a particular interface (eg. the first one it sees on the PCI bus - is
this deterministic anyway?)

Thanks for any help.
