- Enter the Live IP address (this is the IP you will use while setting up the machine,
not necessarily the IP it will have after installation), subnet mask, and default gateway when promted during the boot phase
if you do not choose to obtain an IP via DHCP.
Once booting is complete and machine can be pinged at asigned IP,
go to TEA5 Install Page ,fill out the

will be refered to as ETH0, and the second nic as ETH1. During boot it
is possible to confirm that the 2 NICS, etc are all recognized.
- Note: If you plan on doing many TEA installs from one location a custom set of boot disks or
an ISO image with a hard coded IP address can be requested.
