VL420 IP address configuration

I am a rookie with Windows 2000 on a business unit that was distributed to Intel employees serveral years ago. No network, just want my cable modem to work with ethernet cable. USB to cable modem has good IP address. Ethernet to cable modem is using autoconfig IP address (169.254.xxxx), how can I convince the system to generate a good IP address so I can use ethernet? I will need very specific instructions because I do not know anything about this (even though I made chips for Intel) Thanks, Jim
