Please don't flame me, but why not just use network Manager.

You can set up a static IP address in NetworkManager (right click->edit
connections->edit). Unless it's a box that you plan to use as a server,
in which case I suggest just using good old ifconfig.

Or, edit the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (after
running system-config-network) and just setting the stuff manaully

In any case, if you are setting your IP address as 192.168.xxx.xxx, your
subnet mask should default to (at least, via ifconfig)
