I know that in RH9, you can enter IFCONFIG .
It displays network information on your linux machine, including IP addressing and hostnames.

Hope this helps.

You will find your IP settings in /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 for your main NIC.
If you are using DHCP however this will not display much usefull info.
For more information you can view the network page on the new LQ wiki site at
