I had, but perhaps in a different thread, so forgive me for not putting it here before. I have DHCP, a satellite dish to which both computers are linked.

I do have the IP address, and no doubt it was assigned. I found it using ifconfig. Is that the correct way to do it?

If ifconfig isn't the way to do that, could you specify how? sysinstall is a GUI, so it'll just ask me a question, or I'll have to look on a chart to find what I need, right? Easy, right?
