Something else. When you open it, it should list the interfaces and you're looking for "eth0"

It might be under a different menu item, but it should have "network" in the name.

One problem here is that every distro sets up the ethernet card slightly differently... I would spend some time poking around and see if you can find a place to configure eth0...

Let me do some googling to see if I can remember how to set a static IP from the command line in general. ALT linux seems to have pretty poor documentation...

Okay, try this as root:

Code:
ifdown eth0
ifconfig eth0 192.168.99.14 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
route add default gw 192.168.99.254
Where 192.168.99.14 is a static IP that your dad gave you. And 192.168.99.254 is the address of the router (which your dad should also know)...
