eth0 is the first (or zeroest if you like) ethernet device otherwise
known as a network card. In this case it seems to be an e100 type
network card which is an intel card.
You probably want to be looking at linmodems.org to try and figure out
what your actual modem is (and how and if it will work with Linux) ...
the "lspci" command will likely give you a better clue as to what is
actually in your computer.
