network service is not working.
When I started DHCP service, the machine got hung up. I thought this happened because of DHCP. Later, I learned that if I change the IP address or for that matter any network related service, machine stops working means hangs up.
I used "ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.1.7" command to change my ip address. I even tried the GUI mode(using neat command) to change my id address.
when I set ip value, then it gives an error message like
"SIOCSIFFLAGS : cannot assign requested address". I tried search in the google, but no success.
