Could you please supply the output of 'ifconfig -a' (/sbin/ifconfig , if
/sbin is not in your PATH)?

If you have a card there which is not "UP" then you should define its
configuration in /etc/network/interfaces (see interfaces (5) )

If you only see 'eth0' there then you should either set up  /etc/modules
(a list of mudules which are loaded automatically) or load the modules
manually with 'modprobe'

BTW: In the future, please avoid an ALL CAPS subject, unless you really
think that it is worth SHOUTING.
