Thanks!  I figured out how the host name and IP address:

using System.Net;

            IPHostEntry host;
            string localIP = "?";
            host = Dns.GetHostEntry(Dns.GetHostName());

            foreach (IPAddress ip in host.AddressList)
            {
                if (ip.AddressFamily.ToString() == "InterNetwork")
                {
                    localIP = ip.ToString();
                }

                MessageBox.Show(localIP);
            }

The solution you provided for Mac address doesn't work under the compact framework but fortunately my reqiurements have changed and I no longer need to be able to retreive it!

Thanks for your help!
