Question Setting IP Address and Subnet Mask and whatnot...


You know in windows when you go into the properties of TCP/IP protocol and there's the option to detect it or set it manually? Well I need to do that for Linux, and so far, everything is way confusing... Is there like a file or a command I can do to set it perminately?

Thanks,
- Sloan

Even if you're not using Slackware, this may help:
