Hi there,

though i am neither a wizard nor a guru, i may suggest, that you should use the easyeqn package. You have to keep track of the numbers of your equations by yourself, since there is no internal counter, but maybe it will meet your needs anyway. The syntax is: \label[<Text>]{<Label>} or \label(<Text>){<Label>}, where for instance \label[1]{eq1} would produce 1 as equation label and \label(1){eq1} would produce (1) as equation label.
