You already have a driver for your network card installed.
That's why it shows up as eth0
At this point you'll need the details of your network.
it'll probably be DHCP based, so try running dhcpcd -d eth0 on the CLI.
then it should say something about your MAC address then after a bit, your IP address. If you get an IP address, run netconfig again and make sure to pick DHCP. Otherwise, there's a different problem, like bad cable, etc. Post back your results.
