Failed to bring up eth0.
Which tells me I left something out. But what?
Chances are with a thinkpad that you have onboard ethernet. eth0 will
correspond to that and not the wifi card. Orinoco wifi will usually
show up as wlan0.
Run iwconfig with no arguments to see what's there. You'll find which
interface actually is the wireless one.
