then ipconfig /renewHow can I do this in Linux?

For some reason whenever I try to run ipconfig, once i hit enter, the window pops up for like a milisecond and then goes away. Never had this happen and can't find anything about it on the net. There's no error message or anything like everyone else who's had a problem with it,
Any thoughts ?
edit - even tried the full command, c:\Windows\System32\ipconfig.exe, still same problem.
On a Windows 2000 PC, I did a "ipconfig /release" to disconnect it from the network. After about 6 hours, I checked it again and it was still disconnected. But then about 17 hours after that, I checked it again and it had renewed the IP address and was back on the network.
