help finding ip address for suse install

hey guys,

i'm now trying to install suse, but it requires that i install it over the network using an ftp site. the installation program asks for the ip address of the ftp site, but i was never given it - only an ftp site name. does anyone know how i'd acquire the ip address?

Ping the ftp domain name. It will show you the IP it resolves.
