Right - it isn't needed. Don't ask me why I wrote it :)

But the configuration for the network interfaces is 
in /etc/network/interfaces (it seems you were pointing to the SUSE 
location). The entry should probably look like this:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

With the IP address changed according to the individual machine.
