I have been told that it is possible to address an interface with LINUX using all 1's and /or all o's.  I have not been able to confirm or dent this by looking at any of my references.  However, it appears to work in my lab enviornment.  Can anyone shed some light on this??

Well if you are not connecting to internet there should not be any problem.... unless if you  set your ip to 1.1.1.255 with netmask of 255.255.255.0  because by default broadcast address is 1.1.1.255

0.0.0.0 is still an address.... you will not be able to use this in the internet... but should work fine...  you should not be able to set it to 0.0.0.255 if you have a few PCs.. in the 0.0.0.x network unless you changed the broadcast address to something else...
