Then it's more likely the hardware is up and the interface is
misconfigured. The error message your original posting is
consistent with this statement.
Some things you can check:
1) Does /etc/modules.conf contain a line reading
alias eth0 tulip
or is there something else in place of tulip. If so, what?
If something else, use it in place of tulip in what follows.
2) Does the driver appear in the output of lsmod?
3) Is there information for eth0 in the output of
4) Ditto, without the -a
If the answer to (3) is yes, it's a pretty good bet your interface
hardware is behaving. (I suppose the cable could be bad or some such).
Post the output of "route -n"
To see if the driver is loading, run
tail -f /var/log/messages
in one window (may need to be root), then
(if ifconfig -a says it's there)
modprobe -r tulip
(or rmmod tulip, if lsmod says it's there)
(should see messages from the driver in /var/log/messages)
(should see other stuff, including complaints if DHCP dies)
