n00b here, please help!
I need the Auto eth0 for my pppoe connection. But just after I configured everything, in the next boot, Auto eth0 does not connect. Moreover, there is NO network icon in the notification area. Please help urgent.

Maybe a little more detail on the setup or the problem would be helpful. Is the eth interface supposed to be using DHCP? Has the NetworkManager Applet been removed from the panel?

post the output of 'ps aux | grep -i network'
should be similar to the following if it is running

> ps aux | grep -i network
root 8003 0.0 0.2 6408 2276 ? Ss 12:27 0:00 /usr/sbin/NetworkManager
root 8014 0.0 0.3 7696 3520 ? S 12:27 0:00 /usr/sbin/nm-system-settings --config /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf

hope that helps.
