Fixed addresses for 8.04?

I am trying to get a box with 8.04 on it, set up for a fixed network address.

Since it appears that the normal configuration (ifcfg-eth0 and friends) files 
have been deprecated and NM is doing it all, so how can I make it use a fixed 
local address?  Setting the hostname and hosts files up correctly doesn't do 
it. NM apparently ignores everything but the hostname.


Cheers, Gene
