10.04 has Network Manager installed by default. I'm assuming you have Gnome installed, ( you said Ubuntu not Kubuntu, or Xubuntu ) so look for the icon on the top bar. Click it to start configuring.

You can configure wireless or wired connections. Which is it you are configuring? Do you have a router, or are you connecting the system directly to the modem? Is it a modem/router? Make and model please, we can not see your hardware.

Aside from camorri's valid questions above, you can use ifconfig on the console:

ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 <IP> netmask <NETMASK>
route add default gw <DEFAULT GATEWAY>
ifconfig eth0 up

Any settings will be lost on reboot though.
