Icaros Desktop is a pre-configured AROS desktop environment for the PC platform, distributed on a bootable live media. The AROS Research Operating System is a open source lightweight, efficient and flexible desktop operating system, aiming at being compatible with AmigaOS 3.1 at the API level, while improving on it in many areas.

As pointed out by Michal and e-latour on Aros-Exec, I've done a silly mistake in ConfigIP, which saves network preferences in ENV: instead of ENVARC:. This is like clicking on 'use' rather than 'save' on the other preference programs, and new config will be lost at the first reboot.

In order to correct this, a newer version of ConfigIP will be released really soon. Installation is pretty easy: just download the zip file, expand it to your host's VmwAROS directory and mount the ISO in VMware as CD-ROM #0 or #1. When the ConfigIP CD icon appears on AROS workbench, just open it and drag to HD0: the Prefs drawer. That's it: now you can effectively configure your network in a easy way.

EDIT: I'm investigating a problem that blocks ConfigIP from changing the IP address on the fly as expected. If you have any clue you can suggest it into this aros-exec discussion. In the meanwhile, in order to make ConfigIP running on your VmwAROS distribution, just open it with the Editor and change every 'env:' you find in 'envarc:', then save. Once done, just run it again, save your preferences and reboot AROS.
