Interface lo Not Coming Up



When I boot my PC, the local loopback interface, "lo", does not come
up.  Running 'ifconfig -a' is see it there, but it has not IP
configuration.

 $ cat /etc/network/interfaces

# /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp


Once I configure it with ifconfig, all is well:

 # ifconfig lo 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 up

I don't understand why it's not configuring at boot.  Any help is
appreciated.

thanks,
jc
