[lug] SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

Sounds like you're missing drivers for your ethernet card.  I usually just
make all of the NIC drivers as modules.  Once you get the card up and
running with the modules loaded.  Do an lsmod to find out which module
your ethernet card is using.  Then rebuild that module into the kernel.
This way you'll get better performance out your regular ethernet driver,
and if your NIC ever goes bad, replacing it with a different vendors
NIC won't require a kernel rebuild.
