I am at a complete loss as you how to set up this file.  I have an 
ethernet card that is connected to a cable modem.  I am on a 
standalone, single user machine.  My understanding is that my IP 
address is assigned dynamically by my ISP.  Is there a hint for this 
configuration?  Isn't an ethernet card a network card?
