Ship's Log, Lt. Amanda Shuler, Stardate 231198.1331:
> I have a question about ifconfig.
> I have a machine that I am trying to configure to put onto a local
> I'm an assigning it IP address 192.168.76.76
> I type:
> ifconfig eth0 192.168.76.76
> then I check it with ifconfig and everything is correct. I reboot the
> machine, and recheck ifconfig -- it's wrong. It resets the IP address to
> 192.168.1.1 everytime!
> Currently, I do not have this machine physically hooked up to the network,
> because I was just doing the configuration and I didn't want to knock
> another (very important) machine off the network. If the ethernet card is
> not actually hooked up to the network, will that cause this "reset" to

> How do I get it to stay at 192.168.76.76?
have you just typed this command?
To have it permanent you should edit /etc/inet.d/network
