    What card is it? (make/model).

    Have you loaded the necessary driver into the kernel using modprobe?

    Try dmesg | grep eth0. If that doesn't give you anything then you have to load a module like : modprobe eepro100. If it then detects the card type: ifconfig etho 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up. Then try ping 192.168.2.1. Do you still have a problem ?

    Try this maybe:

    ifup eth0

    If this also gives you an error, than i think you've got a problem. Your network device is probably not installed, or not correctly?

    Do you use an onboard device, or another?

    What does this error say to you
    Divert:not allocating divert_blk for non-ethernet device eth0
    Notice the non-ethernet device eth0 what network card are you using by the error it sound like its not an ethernet card.

    EDIT :- Are you using DHCP??
