The problem is exactly what this line says. The variable IP wasn't set in
the file /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/ipv4

So. Open up that file (in vim or nano, or whatever you prefer as an
editor) and make sure there's a line like "IP=[your ip addres]".

Then run:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
