Why don't the offices use DHCP. Then your ip information will be givin to you automatically.

If one of your offices uses DHCP and the other doesn't (this is often true when you have an at-work office and a home office), you can use the built in "Alternate Configuration" feature of XP.  This MSKB article describes how to configure it and the situations in which it is an effective solution:
