in reply to Change IP-address and computer name on Win32

This should give you information on setting the ip address. I have no idea if it works on anything other than XP and 2000, but its worth a shot. The syntax is something like

netsh interface ip add address [name=]InterfaceName [addr=]IPAddress [mask=]SubnetMask [[ +gateway=] DefaultGateway [gwmetric=]GatewayMetric]
This will give you a little more comprehensive information on using netsh.
Could not find anything on setting the hostname, sorry.
Good Luck

    You should note in my example above.. that the standard connection is Local Area Connection -vs- Production LAN which is what our segment is called... it makes a difference, you will have to plug your correct connection name in... caps don't matter, but spelling does! :) ++ to Josh too :)
