    Please post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    What's in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0? Do you see errors when you run
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/network restart
    ?

    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is missing. I guess this means Fedora didn't recognize your network card or has no driver for it.

    You can try to create /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 with something like this in it:

    Code:
    DEVICE=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=static
    BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
    IPADDR=192.168.0.100
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    NETWORK=192.168.0.0
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=Ethernet
    (you must adjust the values to your own network). Then you run
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/network restart
    and check with
    Code:
    ifconfig
    if your network card has come up.

    Please post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    after you've restarted the network.
