Start->Settings->Control Panel->Network Connections (you may have
to switch to "Classical view" to see it)->Local Area Connection's
properties (this is default name for NIC interface in XP)(Alt-Enter or
right click->properties, "Internet Prococol (TCP/IP)" properties. There,
you can set IP address, gw, netmask, DNS.
As a note, you can quickly see current IP address in XP by typing
"ipconfig" to cmd prompt (Start->Run->cmd<enter>). More info about
ipconfig's syntax: http://www.ss64.com/nt/ipconfig.html
