look at /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
at the very least it should look something like:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=x.x.x.x
NETMASK=x.x.x.x

IPADDR is the ip address you want it to have, NETMASK is the subnet mask

substitute your network device for eth0

ifup eth0

from a terminal
