Any hints for DRAC II on PE 400SC?

I'm trying to get basic remote reboot capability via the older DRAC II
card. I realise that this is not a supported machine for the DRAC II,
but the cards can be had for $20 on ebay so I decided to give it a try.
I'm hoping to use the client software at
http://lanceerplaats.nl/PowerEdge/RAC/ so I don't really need dell OMSA
client support (it doesn't want to install anyway).
I'm running RH9 and have got the radadm 2.5.0, DRAC-common 2.5.0, Server
Administrator 1.0 and dellomsa packages installed. The driver seems to
recognize the card and the modules all load.
Racconf gives this output:

Can anyone tell me how to change the IP card of the RAC? That's my
first step to see if I can talk to it and hopefully controll it...
