This is the important part - you are trying to get your IP address
and other information using DHCP, but the system is not finding a
DHCP server on that network connection.
My  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

# Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+
DEVICE=eth1
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:14:78:04:C4:91
TYPE=Ethernet

Could you describe the network that eth1 is connected to? Are you
using this Linux box to share an Internet connection with the local
network? If so, are you running a DHCP server for the local network
on this Linux box? It sounds like you may need to reconfigure eth1
to use a static IP address.

The network is a simply a connection to a second computer from my computer via ethernet Eth1 to windows machine.It uses DHCP and has worked perfectly up till now,for what it's worth ,my Iptables
has internal network as 192.168.0.0 Eth1 is 192.168.0.1.
Could my problem be a corrupted DHCP. How do I reconfigure Eth1.
