Re: eth0 on kernel 2.2.17
in general, ethernet interfaces are not implemented as files in /dev/.
there's no need to create one.
if you want to use your ethernet card, make sure:
1. the proper module loaded correctly
2. the kernel has the correct nic built into it
either case, dmesg | less should tell you whether the card was found and
if all is good to go, try:
ifconfig eth0 <your ip> up
and from here, you'll prolly want to play with route to set up a gateway.
