Right, that did the trick.  It appeared to work when I used /sbin/ifconfig 
with the argument 'media 10baseT' manually (even though it came up in the 
logs as 'eth0: Media Link On 100mbps full-duplex'.  Can anyone explain 

I added

to /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 and it all starts up properly now.  Don't 
know if the line in ifcfg-eth0 is doing anything, or if it just decided to 
start working again.

Still no idea why it stopped working in the first place though.

Thanks for the tip.
