the commands are assigning a static ip address
(192.168.1.200) and a gateway
(192.168.1.1) on your eth1 interface...
by the way, your commands should probably look more like this:
ifconfig eth1 inet 192.168.1.200 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default gateway 192.168.1.1 eth1
the main things you need to know to configure an internet connection:
- your ip address and netmask
- your gateway's ip address
- your dns server's ip address
check on your friend's computer, look at his network settings... then you'll have a better idea as to what you need... it's unwise to assume his router is configured just like yours, IMHO...
