Question Suse Setup Static Ip for Newbie

Hello Forum,

I have a question that has been stumping me, and I know it is probably one of the most simple things to achieve.

I am running Suse 9.0 Pro and have purchased static IP's, but have been running DHCP because I can't figure out how to set them.

I have them run through a router, and a hub, as I am running 2 different linux boxes, with different linux distro's .

When I used Yast on my Suse box yesterday and set the network card to static instead of dhcp my site went offline.

Can anyone explain to me (like a 6 year old) how to set up my Suse box on static ip?

Any help would be most appreciated.

I have been putting this off, because I have not been very comfortable with making the change, and dhcp was an easy out. But now it is time to set it up correctly, but I can not afford to have my site go buggar offline.

Thank you all in advance.

how is your ISP supplying the IP's to you
I'm no expert but
they may be DHCP reservations, if that is the case then setting it a static ip on your end would prolly not work at all (I think)
this was how it worked for a friend of mine but that was how his ISP did things perhaps yours is different
