I have a mac osx powermac on my network that I access via commandline only.  Right now, its getting its address via DHCP...   I plan to restrict the range that my router assigns DHCP to, and give the mac a static ip outside of that range.  Once its static, I dont have to worry that my shell scripts are pushing to the wrong ip!  Does anyone know how I can change network settings via command line?

Telnet or SSH to the OS X machine and use ifconfig (man ifconfig) to configure the ip addresses.
You must be root. (enable in netinfo).
> ifconfig en0 192.168.1.66
this will change the ip of your machine to 192.168.1.66. You can also add the subnet mask and broadcast mask if required.
