As with most things in linux, there are several ways to change the ip address.
The command: redhat-config-network brings up a GUI tool. Under the Devices tab, you can Edit eth0 or whichever eth[?] you have.

You could type the command:
/sbin/ifconfig -a eth0 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0
Note: change the numbers to suit yourself.

You could edit the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Note: that's in Redhat 9. Maybe different for other distros.

Is this on your local network? If it's NOT the gateway and you're NOT using DHCP you can type ifconfig eth0 down. Then ifconfig eth0 up <IP address>. This will change it for you but a reboot will restore original settings.
