What is wrong with my ifcfg-eth0 file.

Hi

Problem:

My XP machine can access the internet works fine.
My Linux machine can not.
Can anybody see why?

Network:

1 x XP Machine
1 x Linux Machine (CentOS5.2)
1 x Netgear FVS114 Firewall

XP Ethernet Settings

Address type             Assigned by DHCP
IP Address                  192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask                  255.255.255.0
Default Gateway            192.168.0.1

Linux ifcfg-eth0 file:

# Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.0.100
HWADDR=00:20:18:8A:1F:C3
IPADDR=192.168.0.100
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.1
ONBOOT=yes

The NETWORK should be 192.168.0.0, not the router (gateway) address
The BROADCAST address is optional, but I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be the same as the IP address of the system.

The GATEWAY address goes in /etc/sysconfig/network

Make those changes in "ifcfg-eth0" and "network", and run /etc/init.d/network restart

I'd just get rid of NETWORK and BROADCAST. to back up tfewsters comment, NETWORK should not be the router address, in your case it should probably be 192.168.0.255 but you may as well just get rid of it.
