Can I install Trustix to use DHCP?


I'm fairly new to Linux and about to try installing Trustix.

The instrucitons at
public.planetmirror.com/pub/trustix/trustix-1.5/i586/doc/html/installation
(see the Network configuration section)

tell me that I have to know the IP address, netmask, gateway and nameserver. Does this mean I can't use the DHCP method of obtaining local IP addresses on my home network? I would like to continue using DHCP as it has worked well for me so far.

You can use DHCP for your clients.

Is this PC going to be a router or a file server? You still need to configure the IP address etc for this PC which should be static which is what the instructions are indicating.

This computer (Asterisk PC) will not be a router or file server, but I plan to use the VoIP program 'Asterisk'. The Asterisk PC will be behind my router, as are my other locally networked computers. My router serves up local IP addresses using DHCP. I can forward ports or use router's DMZ function if necessary.

I know what the netmask, gateway, nameserver will be, but how do I know in advance which local IP address my router will assign to my Asterisk PC during the initial DHCP process?

Why does Trustix want to know these details if it can learn them using DHCP?
