No, the mac address only insures that the installer uses the correct
ethernet device.

You must telnet to an ip address, of course. The command you give
assumes that an address will be provided via some dhcp server on your
network. If you don't know how to discover what addresses your dhcp
server is assigning, you should probably simply assign an appropriate
static address, netmask, and gateway as shown in our telnet mini-howto.

On Linux you could:

tail /var/log/messages |grep dhcp

namp -sP [yournetwork]/[your.netmask] e.g.

nmap -sP
