Looks like a sed command got into if-up.eth0 and changed all the eth0 to
eth0.bak. Compare your if-up.eth0 and if-down.eth0 to the instructions
line by line, everything between the 'cat' command and the finsl EOF
should be exactly the same.

The assumed eth0 device was set up in the LFS book in the chapter "network
scripts". I should say the configuration was, the device is a hardware
situation and is not covered in the book. I'll summerize. Compile the
driver for you card as a module. use alias in modules.conf to attach the
driver to eth0. Be sure you read the FAQ and throughly search the archives
on this subject.
Hope this helps.
