Huh? The switch shows no link? That makes me think: bad cable, bad
NIC. Perhaps try a different PCI slot? I wouldn't use the one directly
next to the AGP or the last (bottom) one if you can help it.
What happens if eth0 is a different chipset card (ie: a different
module)... try a RT8139 or similar -- they always work.
Email me your ifcfg-eth0 and modprobe.conf if that doesn't help.
