Default The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10)

First off I am brand new to this server install. I have been using Ubuntu 7.10 for a few months now. Really enjoy it. Moved my home computer and notebook over from windows, get lost a bit, but slowly I find my way.

Server connected to home network through a router. All other computers (5, 3 wired 2 wireless) in house connect through same router.

Trying to set up a server. Following instruction in The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10). Everything goes according to plan until I get to page 33 where it states, "Edit /etc/network/interfaces"

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

Ok, did that but I do not get the same results when I restart the network. Or at least this is where I think the problem is.... Then edit /etc/hosts You are supposed to see localhost.localdomain localhost server1.example.com server1.

I see localhost.localdomain unbuntu.socal.rr.com <-- this is my server unbuntu, rr is my isp

Why am I not seeing the change in address from 127.... to 192..... Also if I change from DHCP to static I cannot access the internet. When I changed to static i could not apt-get anything. Changing back to DHCP and deleting let me get the apt-get to work.

I think I just answered my own question... Looking back over my settings I need to change gateway to whatever my router is set up for, otherwise it wont know who to talk to.... Is that correct.

If not will somebody point me in the right direction....
