If Mr. Maddock is running a firewall box, he probably does not want to
run a GUI.
You probably want a tool like etherconf. Etherconf is a package that
takes care of that for you:
"Etherconf is a debconf-based interface for configuring Ethernet
devices on your system. It supports both manual and DHCP-based
(It is in Warty and Hoary, too)
sudo apt-get install etherconf
sudo dpkg-reconfigure etherconf
to probe your hardware again and adjust changes.
