I suggested reading the book to learn how TCP/IP works, not how to
configure any specific architecture.  Anyone can plug IP addresses into
os/400, win*, *nix, mac, etc.  But understanding how TCP/IP works and what
a subnet is and how to route, how to create your own subnets,
understanding loopback, DNS, services, ports, layers, etc. can only be
learned by studying.  The poster was asking questions about how TCP/IP
works, not how to configure his box.
