Good how too - One comment however.....

Before step 1) - Add a step were the user releases the current IP address from the machine (ipconfig /release). Reason being that some ISP's still tie the IP address to the MAC address and with out a release you need to call them to get it released and request a new one.

Using a networking device that will keep it's config stored in NVRAM is much more cost effective. Just about any cheapo router you can buy today has enough flash memory to store your config.
