questions: Non-internet connected IP Address default ???

Hello all ...

	I have convinced a client of mine who is novell IPX based to install a
debian linux machine into their small company. (all they have ever used
is Novell for file and print shares).

	Initially , this new debian machine will be used to serve up internal
web pages and documentation. There are other tasks to be performed based
upon my success with the installation of the machine, and related web
pages. I will be working on this project diligently, as they are
somewhat apprehensive a free software package that can do all that stuff
our novell box did, and more for FREE !!!

	I will be needing to install TCPIP stacks on their client machines.

QUESTION: Is their a "generic" ip addressing scheme that should be used
within this company , since it is not connected in any way to the net.
Does it even matter? I guess I could use any address I want ...

QUESTION: I took a quick tour of their offices, and have noticed the hub
in the closet. The brand - "David Systems", never heard of it myself...
Will I have any problems passing TCP/IP over this hub? IP and IPX can
exist together, cant they ??? I don't have any information on this hub
other than it's name...
