    I am new to Linux. I am trying to set up Ubunto server 8.10 to act as a web server and an ftp server, using the howto in the title of this message.

    The first problem that i have encountered is;

    nano /etc/networking/interfaces.

    When nano opens nothing is shown in the box? is this correct.

    However when I check connected devices on my router it shows Ubuntu on

    I wish to change the DHCP ip to static.

    If i write the information into nano; how and where do i save it too.

    The correct file is /etc/network/interfaces.

    Thanks for your help it all makes sense now.

    However the howto that my original message refers to shows; etc\networking\interfaces.

    Maybe someone should correct the howto.
