aw..to bad..in case somebody else stumbled into this problem, try checking your physical connection
# ethtool eth0

if it say there's a link, and you're using dhcp, try
# dhclient eth0

if you're using static, set the IP and gateway. e.g: if your network address and netmask 192.168.1.0/24, and gateway 192.168.1.1
# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.xx/24 up
# route add default gw 192.168.1.1 up

hth and correct me if i'm wrong
