Can't connect to network with Linux 6

I installed Linux 6, configured the network during the install with a static IP, and when I do an ifconfig command it doesn't show an IP Address. Can't get out to the Internet because i don't think I have an IP/Address. I restarted network, went into preferences-network connections and everything looks fine, ran system-config-network and everything looks fine. When I do an ipup ifcfg-eth0 and get the message "Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager"

Is there an option i failed to load at install or I need to install now?

Thanks for any help.

Let's check the state of the interface... Try this:
 ~ # ifconfig -a
to check all the interfaces on the system, and then
 ~ # lshw -C network
and post the output here.
That will let us know if the interface(s) has the right driver(s) for it.

Let us know.
