I moved your post out because it didn't belong as a reply to that thread. What I'd recommend is you find yourself a Linux book and read it and then ask some more direct questions. This is really too vague to get any good response.

Go to http://distrowatch.com

Pick anything in the top 5-10 in their "hit list". Download, burn to CD, boot from the CD and install.

Try ping, nslookup, dig or even nmap (be careful with nmap....)

I did an internet search (you can do the same) and came up with fping. I also tried it and it works. Thanks for the hint.

@kavee: I just realized that no program can do that 100%. In my setup, fping recognized correctly the three linux boxes which were currently running, but it missed the two DOS boxes because they don't have any servers running at this moment. I mostly run those as clients. A machine will need to have a server that can respond, otherwise the IP will only reside in a file and thus cannot be revealed from the outside.

You can use nmap to sweep the required net range, but unless you are the admin, this will likely get you into trouble if you don't ask first.
@Ole Juul: Any machine that is addressable (basically plugged in and up) on a net has a visible IP, see DNS and try nmap sometime.
Technically it needs the TCP/IP stack up/running (if it wants to see other systems), but that's nearly always the case if its plugged in.

@chrism01: In DOS, normally the whole stack wouldn't be up unless you are using it, but I just started an FTP client to make sure. It still won't answer a ping. I think that only works on multitasking operating systems which have networking built in. I also just tried pinging the same box with an http/ftp server running on it and that works fine. IMHO, there has to be some software that knows how to respond to a ping request. Certainly wattcp clients don't. The NIC itself won't do it even with its driver loaded. So, when you say "Any machine that is addressable (basically plugged in and up) on a net has a visible IP", I believe you are incorrect. I would love to be wrong.
