241The first variable you'll find is <c>iface_eth0</c>. It uses the following 241The first variable you'll find is called <c>config_eth0</c>. As you can probably
242syntax: 242imagine, this variable configured the eth0 network interface. If the interface
243</p> 243needs to automatically obtain an IP address through DHCP, you should set it
244 244like so:
245<pre caption="iface_eth0 syntaxis">
246iface_eth0="<i>&lt;your ip address&gt;</i> broadcast <i>&lt;your broadcast address&gt;</i> netmask <i>&lt;your netmask&gt;</i>"
247</pre>
248
249<p> 245</p>
250If you use DHCP (automatic IP retrieval), you should just set <c>iface_eth0</c> 246
251to <c>dhcp</c>. If you use rp-pppoe (e.g. for ADSL), set it to <c>up</c>. 247<pre caption="Automatically obtaining an IP address for eth0">
252If you need to set up your network manually and you're 248config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
253not familiar with all the above terms, please read the section on <uri 249</pre>

255Terminology</uri> if you haven't done so already.
256</p> 251<p>
257 252However, if you have to enter your own IP address, netmask and gateway, you need
253to set both <c>config_eth0</c> and <c>routes_eth0</c>:
258<p> 254</p>
259So let us give three examples; the first one uses DHCP, the second one a static 255
260IP (192.168.0.2) with netmask 255.255.255.0, broadcast 192.168.0.255 and 256<pre caption="Manually setting IP information for eth0">
261gateway 192.168.0.1 while the third one just activates the interface for 257config_eth0=( "192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0" )

286If you have several network interfaces, create extra <c>iface_eth</c> variables,
287like <c>iface_eth1</c>, <c>iface_eth2</c> etc. The <c>gateway</c> variable
288shouldn't be reproduced as you can only set one gateway per computer.
