12 This is just the inernal loopback device, not eth0. Try 'ifconfig -a'
13 and see if your system even knows about your eth0 interface.
15 If it's not listed by 'ifconfig -a', you need to load the right kernel
16 module to get it there.
18 If it's listed but not up, a command like 'ifconfig eth0 up'
19 and 'route add default' may do for now.

27 I use 'media-sound/mpd' which is a mp3/ogg playing daemon (server), then
28 one of the front-ends (media-sound/ncmpc is a good console client) to
29 set up your playlist. for more info and a list
30 of other frontends.
