    If the eth0 is a wireless card then good luck, I rarely see them work right off the bat.

    I would look though the lsmod to see if the module is there or not. If it is check the config script in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to make sure it is right.

    If all else fail google the hell out of it.
