How can I find out what IP number I have for my dial-up connection to the internet? In M$ Windoze there is something called winipcfg.exe that will give you this information. Is there something similar for Linux? I have SuSE Linux 6.3 and KDE 1.1.

try using ifconfig that will print out all kinds of information about your network interfaces.
Some explanation of possible printed interfaces :
eth0 - network interface card
lo - loopback
ppp - your ppp connection to the internet

Just to be sure when you issue this command you should be wired to internet.
