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.
