newbie network question

Linuxconf or netcfg should do the trick.  My preferred method would be to
break out the text editor on /etc/sysconfig/network and
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, but that's just me.  You'll
have to restart networking after making changes the latter way
('/etc/rc.d/init/network restart'), though I would assume the other two
would do it for you as is their trend, I wouldn't really know.  Oops, I
just realized you didn't mention weather the ethernet card is recognized 
and working.  That's my two cents on setting up IP, anyways.
