Problem in saving Static IP address in Fedora 10 (LFY)

This is my first posting...
In the latest LFY issue, Fedora 10 DVD is available. I could install successfully but have problem with saving Static IP Address in the Network Device Control. Anyone can please suggest what I should do now?
Thanks in advance.

You can edit the file /etc/sysconfig/networ-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 manually to assign the IP address to the interface eth0. It could be different if you have more than one cards. By default it should be eth0.
