You can edit all the files in /etc that contain it, or run
sys-unconfig, which will shut the machine down, then reboot, and
prompt you for various network-related info, including hostname, IP
> b) Add a default route to eth0 (hme0, actually)
If the above process doesn't prompt you for it (I forget), then create
a file /etc/defaultrouter, with the IP address of your router. This is
only consulted at boot time.
