eth0 not coming up at bootup even when configured in ifcfg-eth0

Whenever I boot up my redhat system, my ethernet interfaces are NOT configured for some reason.

My /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 says


is there any other file that I need to change to get eth0 started at bootup?? thanks so much.

i found out more information:

in the var/log/messages it says

bringing up interface eth0: failed.
eth0: intel(r) pro/1000 network connection
ifup: 8139too device eth0 deos not seem to be present, delaying initalization. obviously this is the problem. but when i log in and do ifup eth0, everything works fine!! what is going on???

ok i fixed it.

after a lot of poking around i found out in the /etc/modules.conf file that the alias was messed up. It was aliasing the eth0 to the wrong device driver...
