I get an error on the insmod during system initialization for eth0. I can go in afterwards and manually insmod. I have the eth0 in the /etc/modules.conf file. Any ideas on why the system doesn't recognize the eth0 on boot?

Sounds to me like it could be related to the order in which your services are starting. Something that eth0 depends on is not getting loader soon enough.

As a workaround, try this: put this line at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start
