You need to bring up the command prompt window first.

Windows 98 had a graphical tool called winipcfg I believe. Assuming you are on win2k or xp do the following.

Start->Run and type "cmd". Hit enter
At the prompt type "ipconfig /renew"

(Also note you can use "ipconfig /all" and "ipconfig /release" as well)

If you are trying this, I would be willing to bet there is something else wrong...windows does a pretty good job of picking up ip addresses.
