OK now where do those addresses go and what do I use as a broad cast address and what would be the net mask
do I even need a broad cast , gateway or a netmask
a setup as simple as this just isn't covered in the networking HOWTOs I've read
the last time I tried this I clobbered my internet connection and had to restore the backups I made of the files I edited
