I booted into arrakis and changed the ifcfg-eth1 file.  then I
connected arrakis eth1 to caladan eth0 with
the crossover cable.  then I did the restart.  I've typed  this from
the arrakis monitor:

[root localhost init.d]# ./network restart
Shutting down interface eth1:		[	ok		]
Shutting down loopback interface:	[	ok		]
Disabling IPv4 packet forwarding:	[	ok		]
Setting network parameters:		[	ok		]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... faile; no link present.  Check cable?
						[	failed	]

Bringing up interface eth1:
Determining IP information for eth1... failed.
						[	failed	]
[root localhost init.d]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

#D-Link System Inc RTL8139 Ethernet
#which do I want?

while it didn't work, this is helpful in that it appears to show that
the problem is with arrakis.  at least I know where to focus.

why did the script fail to determine the IP information, please?
