10.0.0.0 and 192.168.0.0 are both normal private IP address ranges (along with 172.16.0.0). Please see http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1918 for the current best practice guidelines.
I don't think 10.0.0.0 is anything to do with the military - Nearly every internal network i've ever seen has one of the 10.. 172. or 168.. address ranges.Macbook 13" 2.2, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
normally 10.x addresses are interlnal LANs and 192.x.x.x are primiter DMZ's.
So having a 10.x internal IP is fine. exception being if you remote into an enterprise network that uses terminal services and it extends your location to put you on the LAN via the WAn, then printing may not work since there could be 2 sets of 10.X.X.X addresses.1 G4 Xserve w/HW RAID, 17" + 15" G4 PB, 2 G4 Mini's, Mac OS X (10.4.10), AppleCare, ProCare, Don't leave home with out it.
