You should edit /etc/network/interfaces (man interfaces) and use the command
"ifup eth0" or "/etc/init.d/network start" the later probably being the
Debian way...?  The "ifup" command configures the interface based on the
interfaces config file. 

My dummy is still up along with eth0.  I don't know if this is correct or
not, but it works.  Is eth0 configured properly in /etc/network/interfaces?
