OK, I'm stumped... this has to be easy...
1. Need to change at will from a DHCP assigned IP address to a fixed IP - and vice versa (Without having to reboot and without using VASM, if possible.)Can I do this from a CLI
Is it some flavor of ifconfig
2. Similarly, this machine is powered up at the same time as its DSL modem/switch/DHCP server. The machine screams so fast with VL
that it will actually boot to GUI level before the DSL modem has synced and made an IP address available... that leads to the problem of having no IP address!
Tried eth0 down
.. eth0 up
but that had some side effects that I don't understand yet.
And, as always, your help is much appreciated!
