Hello
In order to create a new IP address in Linux, where would you store the new configuration?

rc.local ?
httpd.conf?
named.conf?
resolv.con?

please help

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

We need a little more info, like what are you trying to accomplish?
What distribution are you running?

One does not create an IP address. You can assign an IP address to an ethernet interface which is called a static IP address. Or you can let a server automatically assign an IP address when the computer boots which is called a dynamic IP address and the process is called DHCP.

The ethernet interface configuration is usually stored in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
