Can you take a look in your /var/log/messages file and see if there is
any error associated with eth0. Another thing to maybe try is to clear
the bios ESCD or DMI.  This may have been what worked for me with and
old recalcitrant system when moving from 2.6.12 to 2.6.13 first and
later 2.6.14.  It is now running 2.6.14-1.1653.
