I also read that it is indeed possibly a problem with the MAC address.
If you want to be bold, try resetting the cable modem (see the directions that come with the modem - usually this means turning of the modem for a few minutes, then plug it back in and try to boot to linux). See if eth0 gets picked up during boot by choosing to view the startup messages during boot.
Do you know what brand/chip is in the NIC card that you currently have?
