Is this a dual-boot machine:
Are both operating systems (Windows XP and Linux) on the same machine?

Is your windows installation using a static or a DHCP assigned IP address?

If a dual-boot machine, then you can use the same IP address when booting into Linux.

From the command line type:
ifconfig eth0 up netmask
route add default gw dev eth0
If not a dual-boot machine, then you will need another IP address on the same network, which is not being used, for example

Check from the windows machine to see if this address is being used

From the DOS prompt:
If this is on a network maintained by someone other than yourself, please check with your network administrator first.
