Here's a known working interfaces file from my LAN:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
Then reboot. It's possible to get eth0 to reconfig without a reboot, but
I don't remember how...

You need to have permissions whether you edit the /etc/network/interface or the network manager applet.
