Thanks for the resources.
A video tutorial to show how to edit network config files? Joke?
Yes, to someone new the network config file and man page is greek. After reading through part of http://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfiguration
and the man page description I now *think* I know approximately what the 'inet' statement does. It seems like it is assumed you already know what a lot of things mean, what they do, and how and when to use them. A video tutorial for network configuration would be great.
