Setting a static IP address on Ubuntu without knowing what version is being used


How do you set up a static IP address on Ubuntu if you don't know what version they are using?

If you are setting the IP, then you are setting in front of the machine, no? Ask it.

Code:
uname -a
cat /etc/*release
lsb_release -a

I get the feeling that ifconfig will still work even if it warns about ip command.
