Internet on LiveCD

I'm going to use LiveCD as a host system for another LFS build. Want to
reformat the hard drives and go from scratch. My problem is in
connecting to the Internet. I might add that this area is one of the
weakest I have in building these LFS systems. I have, from pure rote,
performed commands and created files. I know only that in my current
system I can connect to the Internet. Don't ask me why. <BG>
What I want to do is to remaster LiveCD with my networking settings. I
copied /etc/resolv.conf and the complet /etc/sysconfig/network-devices
from my current system to the running LiveCd system. The only thing I
didn't do was copy my /etc/sysconfig/network file to the LiveCD system.
I checked the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network scripts and they are identical.
Here are the contents of the files and directories that I copied:
> # Begin /etc/resolv.conf
> domain grm.net
> search grm.net
> nameserver 127.0.0.1
> nameserver 22.214.171.124
> nameserver 126.96.36.199
> # End /etc/resolv.conf
> ls /etc/sysconfig/network-devices
> ls /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0
> cat /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/ipv4-static
I'm pretty sure the 'ifup' and 'ifdown' scripts are the same. My (B)LFS
system is an SVN build that I completed in January, 2006. The LiveCD I'm
using is the current release.
I would appreciate it if someone sees something in my files or
directories that I need to change to put on the LiveCD, or if there are
any hints that I can use.
