modprobe.conf is as follows

[root localhost Documents]# cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 8139too
alias scsi_hostadapter pata_sis
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0

The machine hangs at gathering IP information.  It does not move any further.  To achieve a connection on this machine, I disconnect the ethernet cable and manually assign it an IP.  What could be wrong here?

While the device is disconnected booting goes on as normal.

dmesg shows this
