That advice is for the paranoid.  You can put your embedded dev board
on a network with other machines, including a DHCP server, as long as
the address you get from the server will satisfy your needs.  There
are ways of coercing the DHCP server to deliver a special DHCP
response for your machine.  In the case of the 'corporate' network,
you may not have the option to twiddle the DHCP configuration.
