I've installed Arch linux, and planned to used it remote and putty my way in.

But it does not seem to start up the interface at boot. I also want a static ip. Is there a config file like /etc/network/interfaces like on debian i can config, reboot and everything is ok?


Take a look at the Arch Linux Wiki article about Configuring Network. The section Static IP Address is probably most relevant. Looks like the file /etc/rc.conf needs some values, and you'll have to configure DNS by editing /etc/resolv.conf.
