I've missed a couple of updates... the last notice I received on my
kde desktop showed 200+... yikes.

dmesg | grep -i eth
[1178198.100780] device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
[1188657.808177] device eth1 left promiscuous mode
Those were the only hits, so apparently eth0 is not being seen at all.
The machine does have two nics and looking again at ifconfig -a it
shows different MAC and interrupt for each:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:f4:b5:29:41
