Looks like you haven't got an IP address set. If you go to the System
menu and select Administration -> Networking (might be slightly
different, as I'm running 5.04), and then click on Properties for eth0,
what do you get? Is your router acting as a dhcp server? If so, just set
the 'configuration' selector to dhcp and it should work. If not, do you
know what IP address you should be using.
