Newbie question... where does eth0 (the device) come from?

I almost have my LFS system working. I have installed
networking and I have the local interface (lo) functional.

When I try to bring up eth0, the scripts/software cannot
find the eth0 device.

I'm stumped. Where does that device come from? I
believe it does not belong in /dev...

Thanks for any pointers.
