Oh, thanks for that.  I did that and it worked.  I already had pump installed.

ifconfig eth0 up ***.***.***.***  worked and brought up the interface.

But I am confused as to why I don't have the file /etc/init.d/network  which is
mentioned in the documentation I have been reading?  It is obviously a script
which brings up the interface at bootup.

What package should I install which creates this script?  I remember answering
questions about networking when I installed but I think I skipped them or
something and now don't know how to re-do them.
