 hello.
I'm curious Android phones support Auto-IP functionality or not.

When I tried connect to AP which doesn't have a DHCP component with my
G1 dev phone,
it fails to connect to that AP.
(I hoped the dev phone succefully connect to the AP, and assign own
auto-ip by itself(169.254.xx.xx)).

Is it a natural in Android Platform that dont support Auto-IP?
or
Is there any special options shoud I check?

thx.

2. Add Wikinote as new project in eclipse

Hi,

I got the wikinote zip package from the app-for-android page today,
and I tried to add that project into eclipse, and it keeps returning
this error

Invalid project description.
  C:\Andriod\Projects\WikiNotes overlaps the location of another
project: 'WikiNotes'

While I have no problem doing the similar things with apidemo and
notepad apps, I wonder what is happen there.
I am now running eclipse 3.3 with the latest android sdk 0.9 and
plugins. Anyone have some ideas for that error?

Thx
