Hi Jeff,

Monday night I changed the router config by deleting
the .3 address and by adding a static address
( and the mac address of the rh8.0 box.

This morning the rh8.0 box had the .11 address,
according to ifconfig.  I could also ssh into .11 from
rh7.2 and my win98 box.

Do you think I need to make additional changes in the
rh8.0 box?  Is this a stable situation, or will
addresses change again when I least expect it?

I would really like to have an address scheme that is

I'm glad you mentioned this.  It is something I want
to do after the addresses are stable.

Thanks for the help,
