If you're using NM, go to "System" - "Preferences" - "Network
Connections", select the NIC, click the "Edit" button, select the
"IPv4 Settings" tab, select "Manual" from the "Method" dropdown, ...
If you're not using NM (or WICD), add to "/etc/network/interfaces"
iface ethX inet static
broadcast <broadcast> # not essential
network <network> # not essential
