lol... no worries m8
First do a insmod tulip to see if it will even load the module.
if that works...
go into console and follow these commands...
1. vi /etc/modules.conf
arrow down to the alias eth0 off line
arrow over to off and
to get rid of the "off"
4. type in "tulip"
so it should say (without the quotes) "alias eth0 tulip"
5. [esc] :wq
then your done. the [esc] gets you out of insert mode and the :wq does a write and quit
*note* the words in straight brackets  are buttons ... don't type that in the file
