You can change the configuration on the device using the NetworkInterface classes...
You can also make a tool for the PC which changes the network settings on the device. Just grab the source code for MFDeploy from the porting kit, and then use MFDeployEngine directly from your tool.
Thanks for the feedback Chris. I realized afterwards that you can, in fact, just distribute MFDeploy, it's explained in the REDIST.TXT file which files you actually need and for now, I think that'll do. Of course, I still need my other user to install the Netduino drivers first, so that's a bit of a limitation.
I think in the end, the easiest solution, the one that puts the least burden on the end user, would be to have a config file on the micro-SD card and have the Netduino read it in during it's boot sequence using the NetworkInterface class. This could then be easily changed by popping out the card, insert it in a regular PC and editing the file. The tricky part there, however, is that I can't now hide the whole device in an enclosure. I have to leave access to the micro-SD reader.
