network won't start in VirtualPC - what am I doing wrong?

I have tulip in /etc/modprobe.conf, and lsmod shows that it's loaded.

But at boot network fails. If I type "/etc/rc.d/network start", the [BUSY] eventually changes to [FAIL] and there's no error message. In /var/log/errors.log it says:

archlinux dhcpcd[1974]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response

I'm on a home network using DHCP. I have eth0="dhcp" in /etc/rc.conf

This has never happened to me before with VirtualPC. Windows and other Linux distros have all worked... what's going on?

Re: network won't start in VirtualPC - what am I doing wrong?

is the virtual nic actually activated?
I know in vmware  you can activate/deactivate a nic.
