I just finished the LFS 6.0 book.  Successfully booted into my new LFS system.  
I wanted to check if my on-board LAN is working properly.  when I issue the 
ping command the systems just sits there.  After Ctrl-c, it indicates that 10 
packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet lost.  Below are 
my /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf files.  Any help would be greatly 

# Begin /etc/hosts (network card version) linux1 localhost <linux1> linux1

# End /etc/hosts (network card version)

# Begin /etc/resolv.conf


# End /etc/resolv.conf
