256syntax: 257imagine, this variable configured the eth0 network interface. If the interface
257</p> 258needs to automatically obtain an IP address through DHCP, you should set it
258 259like so:

263<p> 260</p>
264If you use DHCP (automatic IP retrieval), you should just set <c>iface_eth0</c> 261
265to <c>dhcp</c>. However, if you need to setup your network manually and you're 262<pre caption="Automatically obtaining an IP address for eth0">
266not familiar with all the above terms, please read the section on <uri 263config_eth0=( "dhcp" )

268to set both <c>config_eth0</c> and <c>routes_eth0</c>:
271<p> 269</p>
272So let us give two examples; the first one uses DHCP, the second one a static IP 270
