I would like to set up a DHCP server on Ubuntu 10.10. How can I give it a static IP? I know this question is not very specific--I would like just you to point me in the right direction.
/etc/network/interfaces and change the IP's below to suit your needs.
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 10.0.1.14 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 10.0.1.0 broadcast 10.0.1.255 gateway 10.0.1.1 subnet 10.0.1.0/24
