I've built a machine where you can set the IP address (and a lot of
other things) from an LCD panel, but it was a custom solution. We
used a Matrix Orbital display with a serial interface, a custom driver
written in C and a bunch of perl scripts on the back end to set the IP
address and what-not. We had to drill the case and build a special
cable for the power to the LCD, and build a custom faceplate
to mount the LCD.
FYI, If you buy such a solution, you will be tightly bound to the vendor
and OS rev that comes with the box when you buy it.
