That's not a eth0 problem. In fact, from those messages it appears that eth0
is set up just fine (with DHCP).

What irritates you is the "FATAL: Error inserting hw_random" message in
between. For some reason a module called hw_random is trying to get loaded
but this fails (doesn't match your hardware). It's not critical, though. Only
irritating.

If you want to get rid of that message, you can blacklist the hw_random module
in /etc/hotplug/blacklist
