1. tell us distro+version
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
uname -a
2. show network interfaces
Code:
ifconfig -a

You also need to spell out your words, and quit using text-speak.

sometimes you'll have not 'eth0' but 'eth1' or 'eth2' and so on. It depends on udev. Config file is usually located at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules or something like that.
