Found this when looking for looking for same problem today.

I have a redhat 5.5 vm machine.

My problem was that i had copied the vmmachine and therefor the mac-address was changed.
In my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 there is a line defining the mac-address.
If that defined mac is different from the vm defined mac then it just ignores to bring up the interface.

Both commenting the line and changing it to the correct mac worked for me.

Please be kind and not hate me for bumping this post.
