Hi all,

Regarding this problem , what i did was i did these
steps to delibrately make the conflict with an NT
machine on the same network:-

#ifdown eth0
#ifconfig eth0 netmask ( is the  
                                     IP of the NT
machine )
This worked fine , it didn;t give me any error stating
that is already allocated, though it gave
error to NT machine (IP for it was taken from DHCP )
saying IP conflict.

So i feel that if we say that IP is static then the
eth0 of linux machine should come up without any
problem , whether conflict or no conflict....

but then donno how to solve kavita's problem.
