Static IP settings

Ok -

I am new to Fedora Core 2 linux and wanted to give all my linux pc's running on my LAN static private IP's between the range of

I am using KDE desktop if this makes any difference - I have perfect internet connection behind my Linksys router but where can I make this change in Linux?

In Windows I would just go to the properties of that particular NIC card and set auto to manual settings and have IP / submask / DG.

Thanks for any info

One caveat, I also have a linksys router. The dhcp address start at and grow upwards. So either change the starting dhcp address in the linksys configuration, or chose lower static addresses.
