    Are you referring to " MSconfig " ? The console where you can alter some of the startup prgms?

    I'm not familiar w/ "config." What's it supposed to be, or did you just leave the "MS" off?

    ms is different

    if you you run "ipconfig /all" it brings up all the ip address and all the other info.

    my comp does it but when it finishes doing it, in about 1 sec, the screen disappears??

    type 'cmd' (no quotes) to bring up the DOS
    window, then 'ipconfig /all' (no quotes)

    Hi Bio,

    "config" and "ipconfig /all" are quite different things.

    if you enter a command in the run box, it may very well run as intended and
    immediately exit, or terminate without letting you read anything.

    Try this instead:
    run->cmd /k somecommandsequence

    the /K flag says KEEP the window after processing completes :)
