Besides the kernel configuration mentioned in the other posts, perhaps 
the NIC isn't called eth0. Check what you called your NIC in the 
file /etc/udev/rules.d/26-network.rules (let's say you called it fido) 
then change the name of the 
directory /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0 
to /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.fido

This was discussed just over a week ago.
