[tulip] getting the system to look for eth0

First of all, thanks for all of your hard work on this driver.  I think
I'm very close to being up and running, but I'm having one small problem
that I haven't been able to solve by combing the web and the list

I've been able to compile the pci-scan and tulip modules, and I think I've
loaded them correctly.  I have a line that reads (IIRC -- I'm having to
switch the monitor back and forth here)
alias eth0 tulip
And doing a modprobe eth0 likewise gives me no problems.  However, when I
do an /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart, the computer only initializes lo
and doesn't seem to know that it's supposed to initialize eth0.  I saw in
an earlier email that someone mentioned putting an ifcfg-eth0 script
somewhere, but I don't know where to put it or what it should contain...

Please help me clear this final hurdle if you can!  I'm running RedHat 6.2
with the most recent version of the tulip drivers and a LinkSys LNE100TX
card.  I'm also trying to get my IP address dynamically via DHCP, but I
doubt that matters(?)
