Cisco 877 Complete n00b

Don't laugh.

I've set up two PIX pixes recently with a site to site VPN.

However, I recently bought a Cisco 877 for home, it has been wiped.

There is no DHCP so I don't know what the IP is, default don't work.

I don't have the IP so cannot access the SDM.

So I used HyperTerminal via the console. I did enable > show config.

I get "start-up config is not present"

How do I set an IP on the router and then enable the SDM? It should be so simple but I am lost :S
