    ifcfg-lo is the configuration file for the localhost interface - normally = 127.0.0.1
    ifcfg-eth0 is the configuration file for the "ethernet 0" interface = this is your IP and is usually set to use dhcp but can have static settings.
    ifcfg-venet0 is the configuration file for a virtual interface created by the OpenVZ application which is an operating system virtualization product.

    Hope that helps!
