Which did't really answer the question.  Are you trying to assign the
same IP address to the two of them at the same time (that won't work,
not under the usual networking circumstances), or the same IP as on
another computer on the same LAN?

(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

I read messages from the public lists.
