Dont know how to set IP info


I am not aware of the method to change ip information permanently.

whenever i startup my computer, I have to log in as root and type:
dhclient
ifconfig eth1 63.168.90.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

because I dont know what file holds the configuration for it.

Thank you for any help :-)

sorry

sorry, I wasn't descriptive enough.

I'm running Fedora 1
P4 socket 423, 1.7ghz
128mb ram
um....
1 3com nic
1 generic nic, both 100mb
40gb hd....
Im starting to ramble..

I know how to set the ip while im logged in... and i know how to set it up to fix it at the end of bootup...
but... I installed it with the interface addresses backwards.
I dont know how to do this in theory.

I can set ip information if I had Kde installed, but I'm trying to use terminal only computers for servers.... dont want to waste memory.

You can edit the config file:
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1

Or run "netconf" to get a console based gui tool to do it.
