I would get rid of those two, and also make sure zeroconf is not 
installed as your search above can't show it.

You only need to edit one file, /etc/network/interfaces and my guess is 
your setup should just work like this:

---[ /etc/network/interfaces ]---

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp


You can test before changing everything by running 'dhclient eth0' in a 
root terminal (but do shut-down network manager first).If you get a 
working connection then just go ahead with the changes. In case it 
doesn't work you can still do it with a "static" setup:

---[ /etc/network/interfaces ]---

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static


If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
