Thanks!  The winipcfg command showed me what Windows was using, and I was
able to use that to get Linux to see the proxy.  The key ingredient I was
missing was the default gateway.
ie:  The proxy is
My DHCP assigned stuff is, and
The default gateway of is what let me see through the subnet
mask and ping the proxy.

Unfortunately, this only opened the door to the next road block.  This LAN
is locked down pretty tight, only allowing web access to a few, depending on
your username and the computer you're using.  I gave Linux the same hostname
as Window's "Computer name" in the "Identification" tab of the network
control panel.  I created a Linux user with the same username and password
as the one I'm using in Windows.  But when I try to use Netscape (automatic 
proxy configuration) and get onto the web, it denies me access, with the 
following message.

The proxy automatic configuration file is not of the correct type:

Expected the MIME type of application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig.

No proxies will be used.

Any ideas on what to do with this one?
