need help with ipconfig
hello Im trying to find out my IP address through cmd.exe and this is what im getting at the beginning
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>
I can't delete this line and when I type \ipconfig after it all it say is
\ipconfig is not recognized as an external or internal command, operable program or batch file.
My question is how do i get rid of the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner
so I can type C:\ipconfig?
Type it without the backslash. "ipconfig" without the quotes.
BTW, you don't get rid of the "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner". That's just what is called the prompt and it shows you where your current working directory is. It's perfectly normal, and has nothing to do with your current problem.
blessed are those people that had to work under DOS once. *looks at his DOS 5.0 book with over 1000 pages*
People who've only experienced "point and click" are definitely missing out.
lol, yeah definitely missing out ;) haha
Maybe you're mocking us now but just wait till you have to work on something weird like an OS400 or over telnet/SSH in a unix/linux shell. Good luck finding something to click on.

Exactly, Try and set-up a Linux install without opening the terminal, drivers and all.
to the OP, you might want to try ipconfig with the "all" switch:It gives you a more thorough printout.
look up call directory command in dos.
it will let you get out of that directory if you want to explore.
command line and batch/script files are a valuable skill
personally i like csh
