Settings -> System Administration -> Networking Network settings
Click on the interface and properties and use static instead of dhcp and put the adress there.

or, on the command line, do
sudo ifconfig ethV W.X.Y.Z up
(replace V, W, X, Y, Z by the relevant values)

I'm a newbie as well but I think it means in your case:

eth1 10 5 5 5
