in the /etc/init.d/network file is the following lines inserted?

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 host_name netmask

Add the kernel routing table

/sbin/route add -net dev eth0
/sbin/route add -host host_name dev eth0

And finally I display the kernel's routing table

# display route table
/bin/netstat -rn

I have found that by adding items to the display I have found the 
cause of many hidden problems.

Have a good day :-)
