Finding IP address

I have DHCP on my linux box, and I would like to know what the current ip address of my machine is so I can telnet in from the outside.  Thanks.

I do not seem to have "ifconfig" on my system, when I type it it tells me "bash: ifconfig: command not found"

If the machine was configured with a hostname - ping the hostname i.e. if the machine name is joesmachine.anywhere.com then ping joesmachine.

There is always ifconfig... it's not just enough to type it... try a find from the root.
In my linux box, ifconfig is on this path:

/sbin/ifconfig
