Try typing dhclient as a root. Also, you can instal etherconf. During 
configuration choose option dhcp. Everything should work fine. If you already 
have etherconf installed try dpkg-reconfigure etherconf. This will however 
erase any previous configuration for eth0 you had before. I don't know how to 
configure multiple network connections for a single card :-(. If you figure 
it out please let me know.
