Where in linux (what file) do I put my IP address?  I plan to
use slip after I get the networking configured.

Thanks for any help

rc.*; in slackware rc.inet1.

PS: you'd better configure your news system before using slip.

The appropriate place is /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.  Here you set your IP
address and netmask, braodcast address, ect...  I ran ifconfig and it
(I assume) created mine.  It is a pretty simple file.  I think that you
also need an entry in /etc/hosts with your network address.

Other more experienced Linux'ers may have more to add.

Slackware has a 'netconfig' script that asks you this sort of thing - at
least as far as ethernet goes. For slip, most of it's probably in the dip
script.
