Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

Hi, I have just installed Fedora 8 and am getting the following error : "Determining IP information for ethx... failed;". Things I've tried
  • I disabled Kuzdu and the firewall: no effect;
  • Inserted another PCI NIC: no effect, same error message;
Fedora recognizes both NICs (one is on-board).

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.conf | grep eth
alias eth0 e100
alias eth1 tulip

Both NICs clearly attempt to communicate with the router because both quickly return "Check cable?" if I indeed disconnect the cable. When the cable is connected, Fedora sits for about a minute the returns the dreaded message. This is not just a start up problem: service network restart returns the same error.

If anybody out there has the solution for this, please respond. So far I have run out of options and my next step is, as always in these cases, to downgrade the OS
