Default First time ubuntu user

Hi, I'm trying to install a home server that will host my own website. I cama across this page on my search:

http://www.howtoforge.com/set-up-ubu...ns-ftp-mail-p3

Which is how I ended up here.
The info that gets me is, every support page i find mentions editing the DNS numbers. For example:
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.254
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.1.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
gateway 192.168.1.1

How do i find these addresses and nameserver?

Thank You!

With SSH connect to the IP of your server and read the Page2 of the howto you mentioned

run this command

Code:
nano /etc/network/interfaces
and your output will be

Code:
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.254
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.1
there are 2 ways i know to find these numbers.

1) if you are running windows xp go to the control panel internet connections and double left click the connection and you will see this inforamtion on the second tab

2) is to log into your router and it will look like this if you have a linksys like i do.


now use the numbers u just found and replace these numbers then save it and run the rest of your install
Code:
address 192.168.1.254
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.1.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.1
