I have used static addressing for ages on desktops from FC1,2,3 onwards -
and on a desktop machine the best way I know is to add the line:
to the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Then stop NetworkManager by
service NetworkManager stop
chkconfig NetworkManager off

Then start network
service network start
chkconfig network on

With the PEERDNS parameter set in the ifcfg-eth0 file then even if you
did use dhcp then
/etc/resolv.conf would not get overwritten by dhcp.....
