i've never seen that error out of ifconfig before, and can't even find
it in the source code for the program.   okay, while you're waiting for
the knoppix cd, how about you try this:

- in /etc/interfaces, take out all lines mentioning eth0, then put
  the following in:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
	address 192.168.1.111
	netmask 255.255.255.0


and then just reboot the whole machine, and see if you get an address
out of ifconfig when you get back to a prompt.

also, i just have to ask--have you tried this with another cable, and
have you tried this in one of the ports on the hub that you know to work?
