installing edubuntu on an apple e-mac

Hello, I'm trying to install edubuntu on a apple e-mac G4. When the installer gets to network config it ask me to type the ip address. The network uses dhcp and assigns one automaticaly. In the debian installer it said to leave this blank if using dhcp. Can I skip this step and set up dhcp once the install completes. The e-mac has os 10.3 installed. I was going to erase and just install edubuntu.

thanks steve

It should try to use DHCP before asking for a IP address,
but if not, then try leaving it blank or entering a temporary IP address (like and setting up the network after the 1st boot.
