First off im not a newb to linux. But what im wondering is when i setup my linux server how do i tell it what its ip is. Im gonna be running multiple sites on the one ip using ensim. I will be setting up all the domains to point at the servers ip for i am not going to be running a dns server.
So how do i do the first thing mentioned and will the second work without anyproblems?
i know that i can setup virtual accounts i was jst trying to get confirmation on the fact that im not gonna run a dns server ex: dns1.domain.com im just gonna point them to the ip for the server for now so i wanted to make shure that that would not cuase any problems.

Like viper said, more than likely your installer will prompt you for the IP address.
Most people don't run DNS on the same box with their other Internet services, so what you want to do is actually normal and should not cause any problems.
