You didn't say, so I'm guessing you are not using dhcp. If this is the 
case then you will have to put the following in /e/n/interfaces (replace 
the numbers with the real ones):

---[ /etc/network/interfaces ]---

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static


The last line works only if you have the package resolvconf installed, 
otherwise you will have to edit /etc/resolv.conf by hand.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
