the easiest universal way would be (for eth0 intrerface):
su root
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 address IP/CIDR
ifconfig eth0 up

netconfig eth0

You can try the command

netconfig

OR netconfig eth0 depending on the number of NICs you have

I would try "netconfig -d eth0" and then configure static IP to my network interface.

I also use FC5, you can use
[code]
system-config-network
[code]
or you can edit the file /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0 by hand so that it looks like this for e.g.

Quote:
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=none
HWADDR=00:0F:1F:FD:5B:AC
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=yes
IPV6INIT=no
PEERDNS=yes
NETMASK=255.0.0.0
IPADDR=10.0.0.2
GATEWAY=10.0.0.1
