Most of the files you will need to edit reside in the /etc directory. For starters the basic files would involve:
resolv.conf (for use of a name server)
Usually distributions come with a method for easy configuration of your network. Try doing a search for 'netconfig' in your
filesystem. I am aware that Slackware has this sort of thing, but unsure about Debian.
Other help can be found in the Network-HOWTO which on Debian should reside under /usr/doc/FAQ somewhere.
