[K12OSN] ifconfig question

This seems like it should be stupidly simple and I hate to even ask,
but, I am configuring a Intel Pro1000MT Dual Port Server Adapter in WBEL
and am trying to enable ALB.  I put the card in, loaded the drivers from
the Intel CD, loaded iANS from the CD, configured the team with the
ianstool and when I do ifconfig I see my eth0, eth1, and my new virtual
adaptor of team1 anlong with lo.  My problem is configuring the IP,
netmask, gateway, etc for the new virtual adaptor.  I usually configure
the interfaces from the Network utility that comes with the distro
because unfortunately I am still gui dependant (trying to quit).  The
new virtual adaptor team1 does not show up here.  I can issue 
# ifconfig team1 netmask broadcast
and do a 
# ifconfig 
and see my can the settings successfully.  I am able to ping the local
address and out to my router interface of, but am
unable to get to the outside world becuase I recieve a "Destination
unreachable" or something.  I am sure this is because I don't know how
to assign a gateway at the command line.  
The next problem is the settings do not "stick", if I restart the
network or the machine and do a 
# ifconfig
the settings dissappear and I have to start all over.  So how do I save
the info once it is set?  Or can I just edit some /etc/something file
manually to make it stick?
