weird failures went booting


Hello,

When booting up Redhat 7.3 I get these 2 weird fail messages and I would like to get them cleared up, but in my inexperience I don't quite know how to do it myself at this point.

The first one is
"mounting filesystems: mount: mounting point 0 does not exist [failed] "

The second one is
"Bringing up interface eth0
Determining IP info for eth0 [failed]"


If you could give me a hand in getting rid of these I would be very appreciate. Somehow, I think they are really easy problems. Thanks in advance,
roger

1st error
The /etc/fstab has an error in it. Did you modify anything in that file? Post it so we can look at it. There is a 0 where it shouldn't be. Something like /dev/hdx 0 ...

2nd error
Your ethernet card is setup for DHCP. How are you connecting to the internet? If you are using a modem or if the ethernet card is not connected then you can disable it or configure the card with a static IP address.

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. Its how a PC abtains an IP address from another source.

If you don't have anything connected to the ethernet card you can disable it by editing the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/eth0-cfg and change the onboot line from yes to no.
