Configuring Network card in Suse 9.3, both set to eth-id:00 ??

I have a MSI K8N MOBO with dual nics on it. I can't connect to the intetnet or even ping anything outside my router. When I try to ping a website, it says "destination host unreachable"

When I go to the "network card configuration overview" the device column list the Nic's ID's as:

It seems to me that these can't be right. How can I have 2 cards with ethid:00? There is no place inthe configure menu to change the ID's either.

I then went to the YaST Control Center -> Hardware Info -> Network Card
It list 2 cards here and when I look at the device names, they are listed as eth0 and eht1 (which is what I would think it should be..?) I looked through the different's property fields of the cards and everything seemed to be listed as "active"

There was one difference that I noticed (don't know if it matters or not).
On eth0 -> Resources, there were the following fields listed: Hardware address, IO, irq, link, mem. On Eth1, there is no link in the resources field.

If there is any other information that I can provide to help solve this problem, let me know. This is extremely frustrating and I would love to try out SuSE!

BTW I have the firewalls turned off as well.

Thanks in advance!

They don't mean the kernel interface name such as eth1,eth0, they are unique identifiers for each of the cards i.e the MAC address of each card although they seem to be one digit short, have you missed part out (or am I just been stupid)

So does:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0
/sbin/ifconfig eth1

show any output and if so what output?
