Nope, there is nothing wrong with that message. It just means that the
network device has been put into action (physically). even if ifconfig
shows it's up, it really isn't up until the hardware is set. Starting X
causes the driver to do just that (since X does some network things).

As far as your change to get Xsun24 working, sounds like you did all you
need to. You can safely ignore the eth0 message.
