Does `ping` work?

What does `ip addr show` give?

What are the contents of /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0

Did you ping your own ip address?  your gateway?
Did you set /etc/resolv.conf?

You need to think a bit and try to answer your own questions and tell us 
what you've done.  This thread indicates to me that you want a lot of 
hand holding.
