Default need some basic help on ifconfig

dear all,

For some reason my machine at work has changed its IP address (I am guessing a DHCP lease?). I can not access it. After reading man ifconfig I had a colleague try

#ifconfig rl0 inet netmask that did not work, he got a syntax error.

I am using 7.0 release. Can any one please tell me how to manually set the IP address of my machine as I have no other machine to try the command on, I really need to get access.

many thanks in advance
