Help! I deleted my ifcfg files!

I was trying to fix an ethernet problem on my openfiler installation, and per a forum suggestion deleted my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg* files without a backup (I’m new to linux and learning :).

The ifcfg files are all of a standard format and can be recreated manually according to the following structure:


Once created, use the following to bring the interface online:
ifup eth0

Reference: CentOS ifcfg-eth0 config file deleted. Utility to recreate it?
