strange problem with rc.inet1 / eth0 config


I got all my settings for ethernet filled in in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.

When I boot up my machine, and log in, an ifconfig doesnt list
me anything about eth0, just the loopback device.

So I noticed that rc.inet1 didn`t fire eth0 up.

When I run /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 manually, everything works fine
and eth0 is perfectly configured.

Strange, eh?

Well, I added a bunch of comments in rc.inet1 to see if it really
doesn`t start at boot time, but it actually does, because it
prints all the echo "bla" i inserted there, but doesn`t configure
the network. only when I run the script manually.

My question: WTF?

Run the netconfig command and see if this fixed your problem.
