quote "SERVICE variable was not set" error


I'm a total newbie to lfs and I need some help. I'm not certain what all
needs to be configured to set up internet service. I think I've done everything correctly but I keep getting this error.

Code:
Unable to process /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth1/ipv4.  Either the SERVICE variable was not set, or the specified service cannot be executed.                                        [ FAIL ]
Not trying to make this post long but what the heck, I know information is a good thing.

Here's the files I have set up already, my setup is a cable-modem/linksys router.


Code:
bash-3.1# cat hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 mybox1.mydomain1 mybox1
bash-3.1# cat ipv4
ONBOOT=yes
SERVICES=ipv4-static
IP=192.168.1.100
GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
PREFIX=24
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
bash-3.1# cat resolv.conf 
domain mydomain1
nameserver 68.87.68.162
nameserver 68.87.74.162
bash-3.1#
Thanks for any help.

Never-mind,
I just can't type, I put "SERVICES" instead of "SERVICE"

Thanks, it's working.
