Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown....

Linux box went down for a routine hardware upgrade yesterday afternoon. The ensuing saga can be found here and here.
It's still down, although we're up to having it boot again, all the way into Linux even. We haven't tried to connect that new hard drive again either. We just don't have a functional network card at the moment.

Linux gurus: What the hell should my NIC configuration be if I have only one NIC in there? Do I need to configure something for the loopback? Right now, unless I go to interactive mode and DON'T start the network, it locks up when starting the loopback. I have eth0 giving me an "unexpected MAC address" error and refusing to let me stop it now that I activated it. There was an eth1 but I deleted it and now I can't get it back. I'm so confused.

I just want my server up and running. I just want to stop spending money on computer parts when they're not budgeted and we can't afford them.

I just want to get better than a 67% on my practise exams. Back to studying.

[Edit: Angel came home from work, did some work, and got it back up and running. Still no hard drive upgrade.]
