If you want to read up on ls then there are the LQ Man Pages (check the bottom of the page). And as for ip... what exactly are you trying to do? There has to be some other keyword that you could use... IP is used in such a wide variety of ways!

In this case you would want to serach for ifconfig (or go view the man page at http://man.linuxquestions.org/). Had you not known that 'assign ip address' would most likely have worked (although the word ip would have been ignored).
