  1. Go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and edit file ifcfg-eth0. Then, make sure you provide the following keys
             DEVICE=eth0
             HWADDR=00:1f:29:c3:22:16
             BOOTPROTO=static         
             NM_CONTROLLED=yes
             ONBOOT=yes
             IPADDR=10.5.0.6
             NETMASK=255.255.255.0
         
  2. Open file /etc/sysconfig//network and add information for host name and default gateway like this :
             NETWORKING=yes
             HOSTNAME=barbara.shelman.int
             GATEWAY=10.5.0.1
        
  3. The DNS servers are defined in /etc/resolv.conf. Typically the file looks like this:
             nameserver 10.5.1.1
             nameserver 10.5.1.2
         
  4. Network manager should pick up the changes immediately. In case it does not, restart the network service like this :
             /etc/init.d/network restart
