Finally, some help. Thanks!
I found that your fix works until I reboot, then I have the same problem again. A fix that seems to persist after a reboot is to instead edit the mac address in the ifcfg-eth0 file to match the one shown for eth0 with "ifconfig -a", like this:
1) ifconfig -a
2) Get the "HWaddr" setting.
3) vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
4) Change the "HWADDR" setting to the one found in step 2).
5) service network restart
