Keep Network activated


I am a very new Linux user and I'm having what seems to be a very simple problem:
Every time I reboot my computer my network deactivates. I then have to go into Network Device Control (Red Hat 9) to reactivate it before I can access the internet.
Within Network Device Control there is an option that reads "Activate Device when computer starts" and it is choosen.
I appreciate the help revieved so far, but it still remains an issue.
Here is what my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1 file looks like:
Is there anything else I can try?

TYPE=Ethernet
DEVICE=eth0:1
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=yes
PEERDNS=yes


Thanks!
Wylum

check to see if you have a bash script to start network during startup & reboot
it should be in /etc/rc.d/init.d/network

Yes, there is a script called /etc/rc.d/init.d/network.
What do I do with it?

Check to see if "Network" is selected under <services> by doing the followings:

1). <RHL icon><Server Settings><Services>
2). Scroll down to "Network" and check on it
3). Reboot

It appears to be activating i.e. onboot=yes but its not being assigned anything i.e.
bootproto=none.

If you want DHCP then:
bootproto=DHCP
