Do you have a console (Keyboard, Monitor, Mouse?) hooked up to the system running OpenFiler?
Are you able to login?

If so, try the following;

ifconfig -a
Did you see an eth0 there? (If so, maybe it's just missing an IP address....)

I have no problem during the login of account. I can login the root user.
I have tried the command ifconfig but the system will show only the loopback address. Everytime that I login, the interface that I used before was not present and so I used another interface. Everytime I restart I need to reconfigure an IP address to the new interface since the interface that I used before cannot be used. I don't how to fix this problem anyone can help me please!

I am not sure I understand your issue correctly. Are you sure your ethernet card is actually enabled at boot? Have you assigned a static IP address to it? Or is it taking the address from some DHCP server?
If you want to be sure that your network card has been accepted by the system check the following

ls -l /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

Do you see any file related to your network card?
Can you post the output of the command here?
