Fix for "Delaying eth0 initialization" error message

Check your /etc/conf.modules
Most likely, it doesn't contain an alias for your Ethernet-adapter.
That should be something like : alias eth0 hp100
In my case it's hp100 because I have a HP-networkcard.
You should also check in /var/log/dmesg whether the kernel actually
detects the networkcard.

NOTE: in later Linux versions /etc/conf.modules has been renamed to
/etc/modules.conf (contains loadable modules like NIC driver,
sound card driver, etc)
