I just went through this and when I start up it says "Bringing up 
eth0.bak interface..." then a few lines down "eth0.bak: unknown 
interface: No such device"  After a few more lines down it repeats the 
'no such device' line.  Not sure if I did something wrong or if because 
I went solely of the XML code I missed some character but my question is 
, why is it calling up eth0.bak instead of eth0?

The next thing I was wondering is where do I look for the assumed 'eth0' 
device because I would have just linked it instead of asking my 
question.  And if I don't have 'eth0' how do I go about setting it up 
because I never remember creating one?  I'm guessing it is setup by 
itself or something of the like.

And sorry for posting this in blfs.dev and not blfs.support if it should 
have gone there.  I wasn't quite sure where to post it.

Thank you,
