Please Help with IP Config at install screen


I am pretty new to this so please forgive me.

I have search for this topic but I cannot find exactally what I am looking for.

I am installing linux and at the Network COnfig screen it is asking me for the following.

IP
Net Mask
Network
Broadcast

Hostname
gateway
Primary DNS
Secondary DNS
Trenary DNS

I have called my ISP they were some help.
and this is what I have been able to figure out

IP=68.98.214.119 (ISP Specified)
Net Mask=255.255.255.224 (ISP Specified)
Network=? Tech support was not sure
Broadcast=? 68.98.214.119 Tech support said they think it should be the same as the IP

Hostname=Linuxbox
gateway=68.98.214.97 (ISP Specified)
Primary DNS=68.1.208.30 (ISP Specified)
Secondary DNS=68.1.216.30 (ISP Specified)
Trenary DNS=?

Can anyone help me figure this out?
I did notice that if I leave a few blank and go forward with installation and then come back things are filled in automatically.

Your broadcast probably would be 68.98.214.255 ( not sure why they think it would be the same as your IP ) and your network you shouldn't have to bother with, you should be able to leave it blank and it won't cause no problems.

Everything else should be fine though, or it looks ok.
