I don't really understand how someone changing a setting on a switch
could cause these sorts of errors with the Red Hat network startup
script.

Maybe you should ask them exactly what they changed.  Are you quite
sure that whatever change they made is what caused this problem, and
it isn't just a coincidence?  Looking at the messages, it looks like
there is something really wrong with your network settings.

Do you get the same series of errors if you just type "ifup eth0"?  If
so, then you could post the output of "sh -x /sbin/ifup eth0".
