Hopefully, you answered "yes" when asked by the installation script if you're
directly connected to the network. If so, edit the file "/etc/init.d/network"
and put in the proper values. Check your IP address, make sure it's yours.
The "NETMASK" value depends on your network. For a class C network, it is
255.255.255.0, the "NETWORK" address just replaces the 4th (and last) field of
your IP address with a "0". "BROADCAST" again depends on the kind of network
you have. Usually replace the last field of your IP address with 255 for
a class C network. Your gateway is dependent on your network. Usually
replace the last field of your IP with "1" (mine is weird -- it's 200. Again,
dependent on your local net).
If you need more info, feel free to email me off the list. For instance, if
you don't have a /etc/init.d/networks file.
