I am new to Linux and never use it before.
I have install Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop Edition and face some problems.
(a)  I know that Ubuntu can itself auto detect the networking for me, but
I prefer to handle it manually. I was wondering where & how can I set a
fixed ip, subnet mask, gateway, DNS and etc.
(b)  I also need to know where & how can I do the port forwarding in
I will appreciate if you can answer me in an easy way and in details
because I was not very familiar with the Linux commands.
Thank you very much.
