It depends on what environment you have installed. I assume you want to 
do it from a graphical environment so you should be looking for Network 
Manager. You can also write this in /etc/network/interfaces:

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

If it's already there than remove network-manager (also known as 
network-mangler) ;)

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