problem with internet connection


Everything went great with my installation...except I can't connect to the internet. When the system is booting, it says that is failed to bring up interface eth:0. Could someone give me some idea as to what I could do to set up my internet connection?

eth:0 i believe is an ethernet

unless u have set up an ethernet lan then this should be normal (i hope so anyway because it said same to me)

if your modem is all installed fine then you have to set up an internet connection..... what distribution are you using?

I appreciate you trying to help anyway...
Could I set up a connection other than through the LAN?
btw, I don't know if this info will help, but I have a SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter.
