Question Busy Box display

I work at a school and we have been given a 40" View Sonic plasma display which is networked, has no vga socket, has a 40 Gb hard drive and BusyBox as it's OS. I am not sure how to set this up, I have managed to log into it through telnet, which was a supprise, but have no idea how to get it work. We have a windows network with windows 2003 servers, 2008R2 servers, XP and some Win7 PCs. Can anyone let me know what commands I need to use to set the display up or where I can find the info I require. I have looked at the View Sonic web site but was as much use as a brick through a windows. Any help would be much appreciated, we have had this thing a year and we would very much like to be able to use it.

What is the model number? I also did not see a similar device on ViewSonic's Website. busybox is not a OS but in a nutshell a compact shell designed for embedded devices.

This looks like something you are describing.

Smile busy box

Thanks for the reply michaelk,

Oh yes the model number would of helped! You got it though that is the one the ND4200 and I have used that pdf document following the configuration screens but nothing seemed to work i.e. could not send info to be displayed over the network and get it displayed. I think I am having difficulty (well one of the things) in getting it to be seen by the dhcp server and so recieving an ip address. I haven't looked at it for a while but we were able to get it to display it's ip address but that started with 192.168.x.x type of address.
