You cannot use lo0. Run the dmesg command to find out what type of interface is in the system - grep for these different types:
qfe, hme, qf.

lo0 is the localhost which every system has but it's not an interface to the outside - only used internal to the system.

Thanks for your Guidance.

I think I need to configure my system addresses and then try to configure DHCP etc.

I will work on that!!

Type dmesg | more and you will see the names of your ethernet interfaces.

lo0 is a loopback interface, BTW. That is why you can't use lo0....

Check out dmesg and you will see the names of your interfaces (and will know if the kernel recognizes them...)
