Nevermind. I went to the handbook for 2.4, and I found the file I needed. I feel dumb. I had looked at the handbook, but found nothing on Networking. And ...

EDIT: Just tried the dhcpcd script and got connected. Here's what I got:
bash-3.2# /etc/rc.d/net restart Warning: Executing wildcard deletion to stay compatible with old scripts. Explicitly specify the prefix length (127.0.0.1/32) to avoid this warning.

Yeah, I did a Debian minimal install, and it just auto-configured it when it installed, so I don't know what it's using. I've never been this hands-on with anything on computers yet! Pretty exciting.
Yeah, it turns out there was a "/8" at the end of the IP address in the 2.4 handbook, and I added it on my file, and boom, it worked.
Got a bunch of ports on there, and am starting to build a system. Screenshots to come!

Xserver isn't being very friendly. Whenever I 'startx', it brings me up to three terminals on a weird gray background. When I exit all the terminals, it brings me back to the command prompt, with a bunch of info/error messages.

Hey yeah, at least I'm getting X! I'm gonna take a page out of your and Jay's book, and give IceWM a whirl. I just edited the xinitrc, and got IceWM to pop up! But when Ice comes up, I still get a terminal, and when I close it, X exits. How do I get rid of that? I'm so close!

Well, I've got me a working computer. I don't know about sound or video or whatnot, but I've got a sparkly IceWM CRUX. Now, to figure out how to set the desktop background and take a screenshot...

You'll likely have to copy over a "ghost" image of your icewm configuration directory to your /home directory. As root:
cp -r /usr/share/icewm /home/aluminumspleen
mv icewm .icewmCode:
chown -R aluminumspleen:users .icewm
# Desktop background image DesktopBackgroundImage=""
# Desktop background image DesktopBackgroundImage="/home/dapper/background.jpg"
