  I have made the installation exactly as was said in the LSF 3.3 book. 
Now I have configured everything and it is time to enjoy my new linux, go 
to the BLFS, etc, etc... But a problem appeared. When I reboot my computer 
to lfs-system, during the boot-time some messages appear:

Bringing up the eth0 interface
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device
eth0: unknown interface: No such device
Setting up defaulf gateway...
SIOCADDRT: No such device

then the message appears telling it's problem during run of the 
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S20network script.

Below, there is my /etc/modules.conf file: 
--- BEGIN /etc/modules.conf ---
alias eth0 8139too
--- END /etc/modules.conf ---

I know i haven't do something well during the installation, something was 
not done. But, I'm sure i did EVERYTHING was said in the Book to be done. 
What should I do?
