Did you get the ping to the default gateway going?

Yes, just put, e.g.,
inet 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0
in it. Then put your desired hostname into /etc/myname, 192.168.0.1
into /etc/mygate, add '192.168.0.10 YourHostName' to /etc/hosts, get
/etc/resolv.conf from the Linux partition - as I suggested earlier, it
should be enough, then reboot (you don't really have to, but it's nice
There are other ways of doing it, as you may have seen from the other
participants, but this is easy enough and should work.

Don't bother about domain name - that is in this case about NIS setup.
