Here's a quick tip for those of you looking to find your LOCAL (as in within your network) IP address.  In Windows, you would simply issue the following command from the command prompt (Start > Run > "cmd")

ipconfig

Which would yield something similar to the following results.

U:\>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : mshome.net
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 177.21.101.137
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 177.21.101.1

From a Linux shell, you would issue the following:

ifconfig

Which would yield something similar to the following results

eth0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0F:EA:91:04:07
 inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
