I think the preferred method is:

sudo ifdown eth0
sudo ifup eth0

And you definitely have DHCP setup on the network?
Matt - Not sure of the context of "the network".  I'm in an apartment on a
DSL line to Comcast.  The win box is _only_ dhcp.  But, yes, the kubuntu box
is set up for dhcp.  My interfaces file is setup as eth0 inet dhcp...
I've tried to eliminate as much as possible by booting into the recovery
mode kernel and starting networking, with the same effect.  I've even taken
the ip info from the windows box and put it in an interfaces file on the
kubuntu box with no luck...
