[Xymon] Network Traffic Graph - Fedora 15

Yes, I am aware Fedora changed the naming convention. My question is: How can I get the xymon network traffic graph (in trends) to work again? The only network traffic graph I have still only has eth0 in it (from old data before the Fedora upgrade.) I could probably force the name back to eth0 in the OS, but that seems like a cheesy workaround, since this is how the naming is going to be going forward. How can I get xymon to become aware that my NIC is called p33p1?
Thanks for any guidance.
