Also, you can try 'ip link list'. It should give you the name of the 
network interface (together with some other information). Modern udev 
tends to rename network interface to names like enpXsY where X and Y are 
It is also possible that you did not enable your specific network card 
in the kernel configuration.
If you find some enpXsY either by doing ip link list or by listing 
/sys/class/net, try replacing the line 'IFACE=eth0' by IFACE='enpXsY' in 
/etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0 (renaming the file is not mandatory, 
although it is cleaner IMHO).
