You provide the name of the machine you are installing Oracle on.

I suggest using the IP address instead.

Substitute it where?  I'm not understanding the real question here.

>>Then how we will get the ip..

Ask your network group for an IP address for this machine.  Someone in your organization should be responsible for tracking ip addresses and assigning new ones.

FYI:  If your shop is all DHCP, Oracle servers really prefer static IP addresses.  You should try to get one for Oracle servers.
