But here is what you need to know:
>"host" is whatever you want your server's host name to be.  This doesn't 
>really matter as you will be on a private LAN.



>"domain"  again this doesn't matter as you will be on a private LAN



>"IPv4 gateway" your routers IP address, 192.168.0.1



>"domain server" your ISP Name server for DNS name resolution.
