Networking issue
I have imaged my box and restored it to a virtual machine using VM-ware server, everything is going ok, it came up and detected all of the new hardware, and it see's the "generic" AMD card that vmware uses.

screen shot here

It askes me if I want to run the config tool and I answer yes, go through all of the settings and at the end it says it wants to restart the networking services to apply the changes and I say yes, then I get an error bringing up eth0.

When I log in and check ifconfig, it shows eth0 there (also there should be a eth0:1) but with no ip information attached to it,

If I assign a ip to it with ifconfig and restart it losses it.

But if I do a dhcp request from eth0 it works????
reboot then nothing?

if I do lspci, I can see it

00:11.0 Ethernet controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE]
(rev 10)
      Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] 79c970 [PCnet32 LANCE]
      Flags : bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 18
      I/O ports at 1080 [size=128]
      Expansion ROM at <unassigned. [disabled] [size=64k]

I have checked all of my networking information in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and eth0 and eth0:1 are there and listed with the right static IP settings,

I am not a Madriva expert, so I hope someone can tell me what I am missing.
