Linux Networking HOWTO

First, I would check and see if the NIC module is loaded (look for 8139too rather than sis900)
Mon Aug 09 10:55 AM fancy@uilleann ~ $ su -
Mon Aug 09 10:55 AM root@uilleann ~ # lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
sis900                 15372   1
If not loaded try:
Mon Aug 09 11:02 AM root@uilleann ~ # modprobe 8139too
If you need to recycle the interface:
Mon Aug 09 10:55 AM root@uilleann ~ # ifdown eth0
Mon Aug 09 11:02 AM root@uilleann ~ # ifup eth0
