You should probably talk to your network admin before going any farther 
and get information.  If you don't know your IP you aren't going 
anywhere with tcpip.

You need IP, Netmask, gateway/router, computer name, etc.

When you go set it up, you'll use ifconfig to configure your ethernet 
card.  do ``man ifconfig'' or look at the ifconfig_xxx line in 
/etc/sysconfig (xxx=your ethernet card device name) for examples.
