    You don't need to have a DHCP-server/LAN combination in order to use the Zoom Starter Kit's Ethernet connection. For example, if the evaluation unit is connected to a Windows 2000 workstation that is not connected to the LAN. You can use an Ethernet cross-cable to connect the kit directly to your workstation. To do this, give your workstation a static IP address using the Windows "Network Connections" control panel applet. Then connect the Card Engine to your workstation with the Ethernet cross-cable. You may then use the LogicLoader's ifconfig command to set a static IP address by doing the following:

    1) ifconfig sm0 yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz ...where x is an IP address on the same subnet as your workstation, y is the same subnet mask that you set your workstation to have, and z is a gateway. Note, the gateway can probably be anything as it won't really be used.

    2) ifconfig sm0 up ...this will bring the interface up.

    Now, go ahead and use the bootme & command to connect to Platform Builder.
