    Hi guys,
    I have recently dowloaded 2 servers:
    The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server) and

    I have the same problem on both servers: eth0 doesnot show up when I do ifconfig. Only the loopback shows up.
    I try to start networking with /etc/init.d/networking start, an get this error:

    Configuring network interfaces...SIOCSIFADDR: no such device
    eth0: Error while getting interface flags : no such device
    Failed to bring up eth0.

    I have peviously downloaded many servers for testing, and never had a problem.
    I run vmware server console, on XP with a P4 3ghz, 2Gb ram, 160Gb hd freespace,

    Any help would be great.

    Are you using your computer's built-in NIC, or maybe a WLAN connection, or did you somehow change the NICs in your computer?

    Using the same computer I always have, NIC still the same built in.

    Yes I keep Identifier when I launch for the first time each server.
    Let me delete and re-unzip and try again, will reply back.
