Start menu/Run
There you will get a win32 console where you can type in

ipconfig /all

However, I do not understand what you are trying to do.

Probably your interface uses DHCP. You should type in


and then configure your network interface. Another way to do it is to 
edit /etc/rc.conf, but you look like a newbie to me. After configuring 
with sysinstall, you can look at /etc/rc.conf and see what is in there.
