I think on power outage one of the files deleted by the fsck. I want to
ask which file or startup script loads ethernet and other networking
modules (such as iptables). I have manually edited
/etc/rc.d/init.d/network to load e1000 driver from
/lib/modules/KERNEL-VERS/kernel/drivers/net/e1000/e1000.ko which is
obviously not a good thing to do but solved my problem for a while. At
least until I debug the problem.

Your situation I think all different than mine. But thanks .
