to change an ip address run "system-config-network" or edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0" for eth0. I assume that as you're struggling there you don't actually mean how to configure a dns server, but add the details to one? that too is in the system-config-network tool.

if you want dns on such a trivial network, which i wouldn't recommend, it really seems pointless, then you could easily run a very lightweight service like dnsmasq. shared folders and the likes are nothing to do with DNS though. if you want to ask questions about that, you need to start a new thread for it.
