Oh, that's ok. I always thought I was a bit on the rambling side :)

You want to edit /etc/network/interfaces, read 'man interfaces'. A snippet
from mine:

iface eth0 inet static

Do 'ifdown eth0'. Adjust the ip and netmask, do 'ifup eth0'. Edit /etc/hostname
to contain the unqualified (???) hostname.

That's basically what's needed, you'll have to set the domain somewhere...
