Is the entry really valid?

Something like:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

> /etc/init.d/networking restart gives:
> Setting up IP sppofing prortection: rp_filter
> Enabling TCP/IP Syn cookies: done
> Reconfiguring network interfaces: SIOCDELRT: No such process

What kind of network card + driver are you using?
Does 'rmmod ipv6' help?
What's the output of 'ip addr show'?
Does 'ifup -a' change anything?
