Dynamic IP to Static

I recently install FreeBSD 5.4 and during installation I opted to use a dynamic IP (assigned by router). Now I wish for the system to use a static IP address. How can I go from FreeBSD using DHCP on startup to using a static IP?

are you behind a router? one option that I use to solve this is merely have my router issue the same IP address to the MAC address of my BSD box...this keeps the DHCP request of the BSD machine the exact same (functioning just like a static IP). I'd start there...most modern routers do have this option I believe.
