Definitely strange - At the very least, you should have ifcfg-lo!

If you are using hte network service and DHCP, ifcfg-eth0 should
look something like this:

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
HWADDR=<MAC address>
DHCP_HOSTNAME=<something>
TYPE=Ethernet
IPV6INIT=no
NM_CONTROLLED=no
USERCTL=no

You don't need all of this - you could get by with:

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
NM_CONTROLLED=no

You should also be able to create it using system-config-network.
