Linux equivalent of Windows' ipconfig?

twain052098 used Ask the Experts™
I am using DHCP with a linux machine in a mostly Windows shop and I want to find out what the ip address that was assigned to the box.  In Windows I could do ipconfig to see how the ethernet adapters are configured.  What is the equivalent command in linux.  

As an aside, anyone know of a good place to find a mapping of windows tasks with linux tasks?

this is if dhcpcd it's already running. if it's not, just run dhcpcd and that's all.
