Presumably, dhcp should automatically detect your Ethernet device and
configure the adapter..  You might have to run 'dhcpcd eth0', but it
_should_ work..

OTOH, you could try setting your Ethernet's IP to, say,,
then run dhcpcd, and hopefully that would cause eth0 to be re-configured
with the correct ip..

Also, I'm curious to know if you have your /etc/conf.modules file
correctly set up (assuming you're using a module for the card).  The
distribution you have could also be useful..
