Well i had a simillar problem and what i did was in my /etc/modules.conf file there is an alias line that has eth0 on it, I disabled it by putting a # infront of it. Since then it checks and says OK !.

Being a newbie mmyself this is the first time i'm helping someone out so if it works please let me know. I need the encouragement.
